The Sharjah Sharia Court heard testimony of owner of a warehouse in the industrial area (no. 5) who has accused a Pakistani man of stealing Dh10,550.
He told the court that the Asian broke the iron safe inside the manager's office and made away with the money as well as documents, including cheque books, and fled the place. He said that he did not know the accused in person or have any relation with him. The owner added that he can't recollect having seen the accused visiting the duty station as a client.
The court confronted the accused - who denied the statement of the complainant - with the evidence presented by the prosecution, which proved that his fingerprints were found on the safe.
According to the prosecution sheet, the accused broke the doors of the warehouse on August 30 last year, and entered the accountant's room. Then he broke the safe open and stole the money and cheques, in addition to other documents.
After receiving a complaint, the police launched an investigation and arrested the suspect. The Pakistani national was charged with stealing money from the warehouse.
During the last court hearing, the accused denied the charges, saying that he had been assigned to clean the warehouse, which could be the reason for his fingerprints being found on the safe.
