Dubai: Two face trial for forging PCR test result
One of the accused was attempting to travel outside the UAE using the fake result.
An investor and an airline employee are facing trial at a Dubai court for allegedly forging a negative Covid-19 PCR test result to allow the former to travel outside the UAE.
According to the complainant’s testimony in the investigation reports, the 32-year-old Asian investor was asked by another airline employee to provide a new report or text message confirming a negative PCR result after he had first presented an expired one.
The investor returned with a new result in half an hour, which was found to be fake. During interrogation, he admitted that the second accused, a38-year-old compatriot, had handed him a printout of the same result after changing the date of issue to allow him to leave the country.
Both the accused have been arrested and are in court-ordered detention until trial.
