Defendant convicted for breach of honesty and embezzlement of his friend’s car

The Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) Misdemeanour Court has ordered a young driver of Asian origin to pay Dh4,700 as traffic fine for a vehicle that he had borrowed from his friend initially for three days.

However, later, he refused to give the car back to his friend. He committed several traffic violations with the borrowed car and ran up a fine of Dh4,700.

The complainant approached the RAK Misdemeanour court requesting his car, which was valued at Dh6,500, to be returned to him.

He also requested the court to order the defendant to pay the Dh4,700 fine along with court charges and lawyer’s fees.

The court found the defendant guilty of breach of honesty and embezzlement of his friend’s car.

He was convicted for causing moral and financial loss to his friend.

The accused was not present in court when the verdict was handed down to him.
