The accused will be deported after serving his jail term.

The Dubai Criminal Court sentenced a 38-year-old Arab visitor to three months in prison, followed by deportation, for forging a parking ticket to avoid paying fees.

The incident took place in the Business Bay area when a Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) parking inspector discovered the forged ticket affixed to a parked vehicle.

In his testimony during the investigations, the inspector said that he noticed the invalid ticket during his inspection rounds and immediately informed his department about it. Following this, the RTA filed a report with the Dubai Police.

The police then summoned the owner of the vehicle, who during the interrogation, admitted to forging the parking ticket as he did not money to pay for the parking ticket.
