Fujairah - The suspect allegedly entered the houses without owners' permission.



An Asian sales agent stood trial at a Fujairah court on charges of trespassing on two houses.
As per court records, the case unfolded when the complainant lodged a case at the Fujairah Police accusing the defendant of trespassing on his house and that of his neighbour.
In his complaint, the man said the suspect allegedly entered the houses without owners' permission.
"I heard somebody knocking on my internal door after entering from the main door."
"I sent him back, and followed him only to discover that he entered the house of my neighbour, and knocked on the internal door after passing through the main gate."
The young man was referred to the public prosecution where he denied the charges, contending that he is a sales agent.
"I came to the reported houses to deliver some shipment, and never had any intention to trespass on others' properties."
"There's not a single trespassing case filed against me since I have been working as a sales agent in the UAE," he told the court, asking for exoneration.
The Fujairah Court of First Instance found the young sales agent not guilty, and cleared him of the trespassing charges.
The Fujairah public prosecution, however, challenged the ruling before the higher court, where the sales agent reiterated that he had not committed any crime.
The court ordered adjournment of the case to next week to issue its ruling.
