Wednesday, February 07, 2018

Dubai: An Indian worker in the UAE has been slapped with a hefty fine of around Rs 87 lakhs for an offensive email to the country's transport authority claiming it rips off the poor after he flunked a driving test, media report said today.

The 25-year-old Indian worker ridiculed the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) that they take 'poor people's money by making them intentionally fail in driving tests and forcing them to repeat the tests', the Gulf News reported.

The RTA had received from the worker an email that it deemed as insulting and disdaining, it said. The RTA's concerned department took immediate legal action against him for sending that offencive and disparaging email and reported it to Dubai Police.

The Dubai Court of First Instance also jailed the accused for three months although he had pleaded not guilty and maintained that he had been frustrated after he failed his driving test, it said. He was fined Dh 500,000 (Rs 87,38,612) for mocking and offending a government department via the email, the report added.

"The defendant will be deported following the completion of his punishment," said presiding judge Jamal.
