Bad cheque reveals man's 3 identities

A man who was discovered using three different identities in the UAE, was sentenced to three months in jail for posing as his brother.

The Dubai Criminal Court of First Instance also ordered AY, Pakistani, 30, to be deported after serving his jail term.

According to the records, on September 25, 2014, AY, who worked as a foreman, approached Rifaa police station over a bad cheque complaint lodged against him in 2008.

Checking the complaint, police found out that the man standing in front of them had his finger prints under three different names in their electronic system.

"I asked him why his finger prints matched three different names and what his real name was. He answered that his real name that he used when he first entered the UAE was Mohammed Mudaser."

"As for the second name Mohammed Taher, he said that he had used his brother's labour card when he was one day stopped by police and asked for ID. At that time, police took his finger prints and stored them under his brother's name. This time he was using another name that was not the one that he used when first entered the UAE," said Lieutenant Mohammed Murad.

The accused claimed that when he left UAE for home, he changed his name and got himself a new passport with the new name before re-entering the UAE.

Checking the authenticity of the passport, Criminal Evidences reported that the document was genuine.

The accused was prosecuted for impersonating his brother in the year 2007.
