Woman to pay Dh30,000 for false charges against male colleague in UAE
The Abu Dhabi Court of First Instance ordered the Arab woman to pay the compensation to the man after she was found guilty.
A woman, who made false assault accusations against her male colleague, has been told to pay the victim Dh30,000 for damaging his reputation among his friends and family.
The Abu Dhabi Court of First Instance ordered the Arab woman to pay the compensation to the man after she was found guilty of levelling fake allegations.
Official court documents stated that the woman had complained to authorities that the man had beaten her up badly and also threatened her integrity.
The case was later dismissed after investigations by police and public prosecutions didn't find evidence to confirm the woman's claims.
The woman also withdrew her claims against her colleague.
The man, however, filed a lawsuit against the woman demanding Dh100,000 in compensation for moral and material damages he suffered as a result of the false allegations against him.
He said in his lawsuit that the false charges against him damaged his reputation among his colleagues and his family, and that it also caused him trauma and anxiety.
The man added that as a result of the accusations, his promotion to a higher position at work which meant a higher salary was delayed.
The victim pointed out that he was unable to travel to perform special tasks because his passport had been seized by authorities during the investigation period.
After hearing all parties, the court decided that the woman pays the man Dh30,000 in damages in addition to legal expenses.
