Arab jailed for punching boss in Dubai over passport


DUBAI – A 26-year-old Arab man was jailed and fined Dh40,000 on Sunday (February 16) for punching his boss in a squabble over his passport.

He will be deported after serving six months in jail, the Dubai Court of First Instance ruled.

According to police records, the Arab admitted attacking his boss after he refused to hand over his passport, and his boss refused a sponsorship transfer that would allow him to take up a new job.

Wanting revenge, he waited in the residential building in Al Rashidiya where his boss lived, and when the latter arrived, the Arab man then punched him repeatedly in the face.

The victim, a partner in the company that employed the Arab, said he was with his wife when he was attacked. ICA/Expat Media
