Thank you for reading the news about Man jailed for using expat's Emirates ID to collect money and now with the details

Aden - Yasmine El Tohamy - He wanted to collect an amount of money sent from Oman.

A 34-year-old man was sentenced to three months in jail by the Dubai Court of First Instance on Thursday after he was found guilty of using another man's Emirates ID at a money exchange office.

Public prosecution records show that on November 11, the Nigerian man, on a visit visa, showed an Emirates ID that belonged to a Kenyan expat at a money exchange office in Naif.

The court ordered his deportation at the end of his jail term.

An Indian employee at the office said that the defendant came around 1:45 pm on November 11. "He wanted to collect an amount of money sent from Oman. He was asked to produce an ID. He then showed an Emirates ID which was not his own but belonged to a Kenyan man."

The witness added that the staff asked the accused personal details related to the ID's original holder which he failed to answer. "We called the police. The man was arrested right then."

According to the witness, the accused confessed in front of the police he used the other man's ID without the latter's knowledge or approval.

The defendant admitted to the charge during police interrogation and public prosecution investigation. The ID was seized from him.

The ruling can be appealed.
