The three — Mohammed Y., Husam N. and Maher I. — were accused of using credit card numbers on machines used in shops they worked at. Maher I. was accused of giving credit card numbers of individuals living outside the UAE, while Mohammed and Husam allegedly used them on their machines to claim money unlawfully.
The crime was reported in Abu Dhabi, and the Court of First Instance sentenced each of them to six months in jail to be followed by deportation.
The accused went in appeal against the verdict, and the Court of Appeal acquitted them following a revision of their case.However, the Public Prosecution appealed, arguing that on the day of pronouncing the judgment, a justice who was supposed to be among the panel of three judges was absent. This, the prosecution argued, was in violation of civil and punitive procedures making the judgment null and void. Subsequently, the Supreme Federal Court ordered a retrial of the case.
