The Gulf Today - - Home - BY IHAB ATTA

DUBAI: A busi­ness­man ac­com­pa­nied by an em­ployee, both from a GCC coun­try, com­mit­ted a felony of threat­en­ing peo­ple and caus­ing trou­ble on a high road and two mis­de­meanours of jeop­ar­dis­ing the lives of oth­ers and us­ing ex­plo­sives against an Asian sales­man.

Ac­cord­ing to the Pub­lic Pros­e­cu­tion’s in­ves­ti­ga­tions, the busi­ness­man stopped his car be­fore the car used by the sales­man in a way that would en­dan­ger the lives of peo­ple on the road.

He re­peated this sev­eral times and on each oc­ca­sion he asked the sales­man in English to step out.

The sales­man, how­ever, did not re­spond. The busi­ness­man got out of his car and ap­proached the vic­tim’s car be­fore open­ing a can that re­leased white smoke leav­ing the sales­man pan­icky.

Con­se­quently, the sales­man rushed to the po­lice which ini­ti­ated in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the case and re­ferred it to the pub­lic pros­e­cu­tion and then to Dubai Crim­i­nal Court.

The foren­sic re­port showed that an ex­plo­sive ma­te­rial in the form of ire­works caused the smoke.
