Man faces swindling charge over alleged impersonation of deceased shareholder

09/27/2009 10:53 PM | By Bassam Za'za', Senior Reporter

Dubai: A man has denied charges of misappropriating Dh1.2 million after he capitalised on the death of a man with a name identical to his and forged documents to sell the dead man's shares, a court heard on Sunday.

Prosecutors contend the 36-year-old Emirati employee tampered with the date of birth and job description on his deceased compatriot's personal documents, which he used to sell the stocks on the Abu Dhabi Financial Market (ADFM).

When the suspect, A.S., appeared before Presiding Judge Fahmi Mounir at the Dubai Court of First Instance, he said he was innocent.

The Public Prosecution charged A.S. with swindling and illegally pocketing Dh1.2 million which belonged to the deceased, whose first, second and third names, matched those of the suspect. Only the family name was different.

According to the chargesheet, the defendant tampered with the birth date and changed it from 1943 to 1963. He also altered the job description from driver to employee.

He replaced the victim's photo with his and attached it to the personal documents which he submitted to ADFM. He handed the same forged documents to a brokerage firm to sell the deceased's stocks and pocket the proceeds.

The deceased's 29-year-old daughter told the court that her family was shocked to learn that her father's 72,000 etisalat shares had been sold without their knowledge.

"When I checked with ADFM, I was told that someone impersonated my father and sold his shares after his demise.

"The person submitted a forged personal document claiming it was my father's after he tampered with some details. My mother had earlier given him a copy of my father's passport to follow up on a property in Al Musalla," she said.
