Two people impersonating UAE police officers jailed for 6 months, fined AED25,000

-

Two people in Dubai have been sentenced to six months in jail after impersonating police officers. 

According to local reports, a Dubai court has also ordered deportation and a fine of AED25,000 to the duo. 

The con police officers were trying to swindle AED400,000 from an investor while inserting a drug-like substance into the investor’s vehicle, and convincing him of his involvement in a drug trafficking case. 

The incident happened in May last year when the investor formally filed a complaint with Dubai Police. He said he was threatened with imprisonment by two people who claimed to be criminal investigation agents who were assigned to keep an eye on him for violating the precautionary measures.

The two men stopped him while he was driving his vehicle. The fake cops showed him a military ID and asked his permission to search his vehicle, to which he agreed. 

While the other police officer was talking to him, the other one took out a palm-sized substance wrapped in tin, which he thought to be drugs, and told him that he might face a 35-year jail term. 

One of the fake cops told him that he was a captain and the commander of the operation and that he could avoid the jail term in exchange for AED400,000. Pressured, he agreed immediately to their request. 

The victim gave the fake cops AED25,000 and promised to give them the remaining amount as soon as possible, but doubted them and file a complaint before Dubai Police.
