According to the case, he allegedly forged the signature in a request form for passport release submitted to the Free Zone Authority at Sharjah International Airport. The complainant, an Egyptian businessman residing in Dubai, said during the investigation that he came to know about the incident from an employee at the accounting section of his company.

"One day in October 2007, one of my staff showed up at my office and asked me whether I had authorised the accused to sign on my behalf on a request form for passport release. As our company operates under the Free Zone Authority, the staff's passports are deposited with the authority. At first, I was surprised and I thought the employee was not serious. But later, I called my partner, a UAE national, and told him about the matter. We then filed a complaint at the Rafa police station."

The complainant and his partner found two photocopies of the request form with the forged signature in the accused's office.

The court fixed the next hearing on August 11.
