Dubai // A manager fired after a one-month probation period threatened to kill his boss before demanding Dh60,000 compensation, the Dubai Criminal Court heard today.

Prosecutors said that MF, a 27-year-old logistic manager at the company, told an employee who was trying to eject him from the building: "Ask the police to shoot me - otherwise I will shoot him".

He denied the charge and said his previous employer had given up his claim. A verdict was scheduled for June 24.
