The Dubai C******l Court is hearing the case of an Asian expatriate who allegedly forged a residency voucher attributed to the Dubai General Directorate for Residency and Foreigners Affairs and a salary certificate attributed to Dubai Customs.
The defendant works as an assistant manager in a bank. He admitted to planning the incident two months prior to committing the c***e. He stored photographs and documents, altered the data, and used it to deceive a teller from another bank.
The bank teller that was duped testified in court that the defendant called him and requested for a credit card. They met in Bur Dubai to discuss the requirements and the defendant submitted it the following day.
The accused has spent the entire card’s credit limit of Dh15,000. The Dubai Police has also confiscated the computer used in the forgery.
The suspect pleaded guilty to the c***e and his hearing will resume on October 16, reported Emarat al Youm.
