Fujairah: The Fujairah Misdemeanours Court has fined a person Dh50,000 for making 15 phone calls to a police station and using foul language.
Court records said a phone call was made to Al Madina police station in Fujairah by the accused, saying his belongings were at the residence of an acquaintance. He said he wanted a police patrol to help him retrieve his belongings.
With each call, the accused used foul language while the policeman who received the call continued to inform him of the procedures that must be followed in the case.
His incessant calls caused an obstruction in responding to other people’s calls.
The accused was arrested and brought to the police station. The acquaintance whom the accused filed a complaint against was summoned to inquire about the accused’s belongings, but he said there was nothing belonging to him in his apartment.
It then became clear to the police that the caller was in a good condition. He was asked to undergo a medical examination, but he did not respond and initially refused to go to the hospital in order to give a sample for alcohol testing. He also refused to be examined by a doctor specialised in testing for alcohol in the breath.
