DUBAI – An Arab man who used a “stun gun” on his nephew landed back in court on charges of intimidating the boy and committing a harsh act against him.
At the Ras Al Khaimah Misdemeanour Court of Appeal, the man denied the charges and claimed that he was only playing with his sister’s son. He was appealing a previous court’s ruling that found him guilty of the charge and ordered him to pay a fine of Dh5,000.
A video of him using a stun gun on his nephew went viral on social media. Ras Al Khaimah Police arrested the man following the November 2018 incident.
“It was only a smart application on my cell phone that sounded like an electric shock gadget,” he told the court of appeal.
The boy’s father told the court that he has withdrawn the case and believes the uncle “was only kidding with my son whom he loves so much and can never put at risk.”
