Man in UAE empties Dh2m from joint bank account while wife is abroad
The husband used some of the money for his personal projects.
A husband has been ordered to pay back the Dh2 million he fraudulently transferred from a joint bank account he shared with his wife.
Official court documents stated that after working with an Abu Dhabi firm for 16 years, the Arab woman left the UAE and returned to her home country.
She was depositing her savings to a joint bank account which she shared with her husband. The woman said that she had also transferred her end-of-service gratuity to the same bank account. Before she left the country, the total amount in the bank account was Dh2 million.
When she returned to the UAE, the woman said she found that her husband had closed their joint account without her knowledge and consent. She said the man transferred the cash to his personal account. He then used some of the cash for his personal projects.
The woman requested court to direct the man to pay back her savings because he used it without her consent.
After hearing both the parties, the Abu Dhabi court of first instance ordered the man to pay his wife the Dh2 million he had taken from their joint bank account.
