Clerk cleared of lock­ing up man in of­fice

Gulf News - - Nation -

Prose­cu­tors

lost their ap­peal against a clerk who was cleared of lock­ing up a man inside a travel and tourism agency of­fice for two hours with the elec­tric­ity and air­con­di­tion­ing switched off.

In July, the Dubai Court of First In­stance ac­quit­ted the Egyp­tian clerk of il­le­gally con­fin­ing the Pak­istani man in the agency. Prose­cu­tors ap­pealed the pri­mary judge­ment be­fore the Ap­peal Court and asked to have the judge­ment over­turned.

Pre­sid­ing judge Saeed Salem Bin Sarm re­futed prose­cu­tors’ ap­peal and up­held the clerk’s in­no­cence cit­ing lack of ev­i­dence. (Staff Re­port)
