Dubai: Two policemen have been jailed after a court convicted them
yesterday of tapping into the Dubai Police network system and cancelling
Dh3,650 worth of traffic violations.
The Dubai Court of First Instance's Presiding Judge Hamad Abdul Latif
Abdul Jawad jailed each of the Emirati policemen, a 23-year-old first
corporal and a 22-year-old first policeman, for three months.
When the defendants appeared in court earlier, they denied the charges.
Prosecutors had charged 23-year-old S.A. and 22-year-old S.M. with
abusing their duty at Dubai Police's operation room and accessing the
network [without their superiors' approval] to cancel their own traffic
violations and those of others.
