A four member gang was arrested in Dubai against the complaint of forging official documents for issuing entry permits to 12 persons in the sponsorship of local people.
The Process of Forgery
Ali Humaid Bin Khatem, the Senior Advocate General in Residency Prosecution, stated that four men forged power of attorney of local people and presented the same with the copy of Emirate ID to Tasheel centers for obtaining the visa permits. The prosecution stated that the gang had issued 12 visa permits at the cost of 5,000 Dirham each. It was discovered when a person visited immigration and searched for the Emirates sponsor who later denied regarding issuing the permit in his name.
An investigation, followed and it was discovered that a person was the brains behind this scam. Officials subsequently arrested that man who confessed to working as a middleman with people seeking Dubai as a destination and three men who helped to get the visas issued. The person provided the picture and details of workers and forwarded them to other members for issuing the visa at a cost of 5,000 Dirham.
The Prosecution and Sentencing
