A 34-year-old man was convicted to three months in jail by the Dubai Court of First Instance after he was found using another man’s Emirates ID at a money exchange in Naif to get cash.
The Nigerian man, on a visit visa came at the money exchange center around 1:45 pm on November 11, according to an employee.
“He wanted to collect a sum of money sent from Oman. He was asked to provide an ID. He then showed an Emirates ID which was not his own but belonged to a Kenyan man,” the employee added.
The staff asked about the whereabouts of the ID; the man failed to answer.
“We called law enforcement. The man was apprehended right then,” he said.
The accused admitted to the charge during police investigation and will be deported once he has served his jail term, the court-ordered.
