A jobless Pakistani, HM, allegedly forged two power of attorney certificates for leasing a flat and conned a tenant of Dh20,000, the Dubai Criminal Court heard.
Three men are accused in the case.
The victim says she asked him for lease signed by the owner and was presented with the same, against which she paid the cheque.
After moving to the flat, the victim learnt he was defrauded.
“I called the owner and learnt from him that he does not know anyone called Hares,” testified the victim.
The owner lodged a complaint with the police as he did not give a power of attorney nor did he sign on a lease.
Police arrested HM while Hares is reported missing.
HM told the police that he had agreed with Hares to lease the flat and then to sublet it against commission.
He, however, blamed Hares for providing the forged power of attorney certificates for him to sublet the flat.
The court will give its sentence on September 18.

“The caller asked me about my relationship with someone called Ahmad, whom I found out, was divorced from her.
