He stated that he had joined the centre in 2019 on a monthly salary of Dh68,000.

He had received his pay till last September, following which the payment was stopped for the next three months as the defendant was facing legal disputes.

According to Al Bayan, the doctor has alleged that the centre has refused to clear his dues.

The court has ordered the defendant, who is in judicial custody, to pay Dh204,000 to the doctor and also pick up the tab for his legal expenses.
