DUBAI: A 35-year-old Asian worker is facing charges of physical assault when he attacked his supervisor with a stick.
The accused allegedly went ballistic over a three-day deduction from his salary following a report filed against him for his leaving the site and being absent without permission.
In the Court of First Instance, the supervisor, 46, told prosecutors that on January 30 last year, while he was at the Business Bay area, his worker beat his leg, back, and arms using a stick.
Based on the medical report, the victim sustained permanent injury to his right hand. The accused denied having intended to harm his supervisor permanently.
The next ruling is on January 28, 2018.
