The 24-year-old man, who is in police detention, is accused of holding a Filipina up in his car against her will on May 29 this year.

In her statement, the 27-year-old woman said, "I was waiting for a cab in Satwa to go to my work place in the Creek Park area around 9am. After a while, a car stopped near me and the driver offered to drop me wherever I wanted.

"I told him where I wanted to go. The moment I got in the vehicle, he locked the car doors centrally and told me that there was no use going to work. He said he would give me money if I had sex with him."

Instead of heading towards the Creek Park, where the woman worked, he drove her to Deira and later he parked the car on the highway and kissed and molested her.

"I begged him not to hurt me and pretended I would be with him if he dropped me at my work place for signing in the attendance register," she said.

When they reached the Creek Park, the accused got suspicious and did not want to let her go. She told him that she would keep her bag in the car as a guarantee that she would come back.

After she was dropped near her office, she ran to her supervisor and told him about the incident.

The supervisor called the police.

Emirati facing charges for forging contract

THE Dubai Criminal Court of First Instance heard on Tuesday a case of forgery involving a UAE trader.

The 37-year-old Emirati defendant, who is out on bail, is accused of forging a contract of share selling in a company. He allegedly signed the documents on behalf of his Indian partner in May 2006.

He is facing charges of forgery and fraud to usurp others' money.

According to the court records, the man submitted the forged document to the Notary Public at Dubai Courts and the latter sealed and signed it out of good will.

He then submitted the document to the Department of Economic Development.

The Notary Public at the Dubai Courts stated that while he was on duty the defendant came to his office and asked him to legalise a sale deed of shares in a commercial company for construction materials. The accused wanted to sell his shares in that company to a third party.

As his Indian partner was not in the country, the defendant claimed he had the Power of Attorney to sign on his behalf and sell his shares. Later the Notary found out that the trader was not authorised by the partner to sign on his behalf, as he did not have a mandate to take actions in his absence.
