Thank you for reading the news about Legal adviser forges power of attorney in UAE and now with the details

Aden - Yasmine El Tohamy - Defence lawyer requested the court to acquit his client for lack of physical and moral evidence.

A legal adviser stood trial at the Ras Al Khaimah Criminal Court on charges of forging two power of attorney: one official and another customary.

He allegedly added the names of two lawyers to the forged documents without their knowledge or consent, the court records stated.

The indictment sheet also showed that he had intentionally obtained and used the documents he forged after misleading a government officer with the RAK Courts.

The suspect denied committing any crime, and told the court that he added the names of the said advocates with their consent. "I did not forge any power of attorney. They were both genuine, and as per rules."

He added that he used the advocacy cards of the two lawyers with their permission. "I have also taken their consent to add their names in the power of attorney I used to represent a client in court."

The defendant told the court that he works as a legal adviser with an advocacy office where the other two lawyers are also working.

"An Asian client approached our advocacy office to file a case against his sponsor who had allegedly stolen his money," he told the court.

Having no licence to work as a lawyer, the defendant claimed to have asked two of his colleagues to add their names in the power of attorney he obtained so that he could appear in court instead of them.

The defence lawyer requested the court to acquit his client for lack of physical and moral evidence.

The court ordered adjournment of the case to December 30 to issue its ruling.
