UAE: Man fined Dh10,000 for insulting colleague
Official court documents stated that the incident occurred last year while the men were at their workplace
An Abu Dhabi resident, who insulted his workmate and threatened to harm him in front of his colleagues at work, has been told to pay his colleague Dh10,000 in compensation for the damages.
The Abu Dhabi Civil Court of First Instance ordered the Arab man to pay the compensation amount to the victim after he was found guilty of the same.
Official court documents stated that the incident occurred last year while the men were at their workplace.
An investigation confirmed that the defendant had abused and insulted his colleague at work and also threatened to harm him.
The reason for the differences between the two men was not mentioned.
Prosecutors charged the defendant with insulting and threatening his colleague and he was, thereafter, convicted by the misdemeanour court.
The victim then filed a civil lawsuit against the defendant demanding Dh60,000 in compensation for the moral, psychological and material damages he suffered.
He said the man's insults damaged his reputation among his colleagues at work.
The defendant admitted to abusing his colleague in anger but denied that his colleague had suffered any material damages.
His lawyer argued that the complaint didn't present any evidence to prove that the colleague had suffered financial losses.
The judge then directed the defendant to pay the victim Dh10,000 in compensation for moral damages.
