By emirates24/7

The UAE Public Prosecution has ordered the arrest of a private company director who was proven to have faked the employment of Emirati citizens.

The suspect allegedly forged e-documents, faked employment contracts, and falsely stated that his company had hired Emirati citizens, with the aim of obtaining the benefits and financial support provided by the Nafis and various Emiratisation programmes.

The UAE Attorney-General, received a report about the incident from the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation and ordered the launch of an urgent investigation into the matter, which proved that the company director committed these actions and falsely hired over 40 citizens, aided by several company employees.

The Attorney-General urged officials from relevant private sector entities to be responsible and perform their roles in qualifying Emirati cadres and improving their skills, as well as contributing to the process of economic development.
