Manager forges expat’s conduct certificate for a job in Dubai
He reportedly changed the photo and the personal details on the document for the applicant.
An expat has stood trial in Dubai after allegedly forging an e-certificate of good conduct for a Ugandan jobseeker.
The Dubai Court of First Instance heard how the expat — a 28-year-old Sudanese national in a managerial post — falsified a criminal status certificate that the Dubai Police had originally issued to an Indian expat. He reportedly changed the photo and the personal details on the document for the Ugandan applicant. The manager has been detained.
During the investigation, the defendant claimed that he faked the document “for the sake of work”. He said it was an “act of foolishness”, attributing it to an error and the similarity in the ID numbers of both men.
A Yemeni senior manager recounted to the investigator how the case unfolded. “I worked as a relations manager at a security company. I was alerted by the services section on September 28 about a forgery in a document that was submitted in the name of an applicant (the Ugandan man).
“When confronted about the forgery, the accused admitted that he forged the e-certificate that had been issued from the Dubai Police website and which was sent to the e-mail of the security company.”
According to a witness, the manager sent the forged certificate to a government entity as one of the requirements for the issuance of a security licence card.
The witness explained that a person applying for a security guard position must obtain a criminal status certificate from the Dubai Police to show that he/she is of good conduct. This certificate used to be sent by the defendant, whose duties included handling the documents required for the security guard posts.
A ruling will be pronounced on December 17.
