Man forges fake UAE entry permits, dupes visitor of Dh400,000
Prosecutors have charged the defendant with fraud, forgery of official documents and use of those forged documents.
A Pakistani businessman has been charged at the Dubai Court of First Instance with fraud and forgery after he duped a Kenyan man of Dh400,000.
According to public prosecution records, the 25-year-old businessman forged 12 entry permits and four employment contracts which he sold to the victim.
The case dates back to February of last year and was registered at Al Muraqqabat police station.
The defendant handed the employment contracts to the complainant and falsely claimed to him they were issued from the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization. He also wrongfully attributed the entry permits to the Federal Authority of Identity and Naturalization.
Prosecutors have charged the defendant with fraud, forgery of official documents and use of those forged documents. They sought the strictest legal penalty possible against the defendant as he remains in detention.
The 28-year-old complainant said that he approached the businessman, who ran an office, as he needed employment visas for some of his colleagues in February last year. "He claimed he could have the visas issued and would charge me Dh 2,000 for every visa."
The victim then paid the defendant Dh400,000 for 200 visas on several occasions. "After he got the cash, he handed me over 70 visas of the requested visas. I lodged a complaint against him after I found they were forged," the victim told the prosecutor.
Reports from both the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization and the Federal Authority of Identity and Naturalization stated that the labor contracts and entry permits, subject of the case, were forged.
The defendant has a criminal record in forgery.
During investigation, he admitted he collected Dh380,000 from the victim for visas.
The trial will continue on June 30.
