The suspect convinced the victim, working in a restaurant, that he could arrange Canadian visa for him and his wife for a payment of Dh20,000. The victim paid the money, but the Pakistani failed to secure visas for the couple. Jinej subsequently lodged a complaint with the police who arrested Alexander and produced him in Court.

In another case, the Court sentenced an Indian identified as Jassan M to two months imprisonment on charges of stealing a mobile phone from the residence of an Indian merchant, identified as Sitia R.

Police arrested the suspect when he was trying to sell the mobile, and the latter confessed to the crime.
