Duo pose as CID cops in UAE, rob man of wallet
They used the credit card to make illegal purchases
Two Asian expatriates stood trial at the criminal court in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah on charges of posing as CID sleuths.
As per court records, the case came to light early this month when the duo - who claimed to be CID men - abducted the victim in their private car.
The suspects then robbed the plaintiff of his wallet and used his credit card to make illegal purchases.
On being alerted, the RAK Police initiated probe, tracked down the defendants and arrested them with the robbed credit card in their possession.
The accused were referred to the RAK public prosecution which charged them with impersonating as CID men, abducting the victim, robbing his wallet and using his credit card in violation of law.
The suspects, having denied their crime, were referred to the criminal court of Ras Al Khaimah where they again denied the accusations.
However, they told the court, presided over by chief judge Sameh Shaker, that they did rob some money from the victim's wallet.
The duo requested the court to assign them a defence lawyer. The court accepted their request and ordered the adjournment of the case to next month.
