The accused, N.F, 40, failed to show up at the court.

The hearing has now been fixed on July 15. UAE national A.H, an examiner at the RTA, had testified that while she was on duty on March 27, the Vietnamese woman came and asked her examine her, which she accepted. She said she asked her for the test fee and she gave it to her.

The RTA examiner added that the defendant came again and dropped some papers, including a rolled paper, which she later realised, contained $300. She immediately informed her supervisor about the bribery offer and the matter was referred to the police.
