The men appeared before the court on Monday on charges of car theft and forging official documents. They include a 28-year-old Pakistani, a 34-year-old Syrian, a 31-year-old Syrian and two Iraqi brothers, aged 36 and 38 years.
The men forged documents and bought 21 cars from a car company on a bank loan. Two bank accounts were opened using forged passports and trade licences. The cars were also registered at the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) in the name of the fake company. The Dubai Police received information that new cars were being distributed across Dubai, including Sheraton Deira, Century Mall, Abu Hail area and behind Grand Hyatt hotel, and were being offered for sale.
Officers began monitoring the cars and saw a sixth man changing the number plates of the cars. The man fled the scene and police have not found him. However the 34-year-old Syrian was caught and he allegedly confessed to the crime and revealed details to the police.He said four of the cars were smuggled to Iraq by the brothers. The other Syrian was arrested trying to leave the UAE and said he helped smuggle the cars by hiding them in containers with the help of an employee of a maritime company at Al Hamriya Port.
