According to court records, Fujairah police received a complaint from a bank that A.A.G issued two dud cheques for Dh230,000 against a personal loan he applied for.

An official with the bank stated that the bank had asked the accused many times to pay back the loan but he refused to pay.

A.A.G was apprehended and was referred to the prosecution which indicted him for issuing bad cheques.

The convict was then referred to the Fujairah Court of the First Instance which handed down a two-month jail term.

The accused moved the Court of Appeal. Before the court, a representative from the bank said that the accused agreed to pay back the loan.

Accordingly, the Fujairah Court of Appeal commuted the verdict and ordered the accused to pay Dh1,000 as fine instead of two-month jail.
