DUBAI – A Sharjah resident got the shock of her life when she received a text message informing her that she has accumulated fines of Dh95,000 for various traffic offenses.
The only problem was, she never made the traffic violations, according to Emarat Al Youm newspaper.
When she went to the police to have her case reviewed, she discovered that her sister’s husband had registered her vehicle under her name without her permission.
The woman, a GCC national, then filed a case against her sister’s husband at the Sharjah Criminal Court after efforts to settle the matter out of court failed, according to the report.
In court, however, the man denied her accusations and provided a receipt to prove that the woman registered the vehicle under her name.
The hearing resumes on April 8, when witnesses are expected to give their testimonies. GAD/Expat Media
