The case unfolded when the Public Prosecution charged Salem A, a non-commissioned officer with the Al Ain Department, with counterfeiting official documents which resulted in legal procedures against Osama A and Mohamed A, though he knew of their innocence.

The prosecution referred the case to the Al Ain Shariah Misdemeanour Court, which acquitted Salem for lack of sufficient evidence.

Before the Al Ain Shariah Court of Appeal, both the prosecution and Mohamed A contested the judgment of the lower court.

The court combined the two appeals, dismissed the earlier sentence, and imposed a fine of Dh1, 100 on Salem.
