Man 'forced to sign bounced cheque', Abu Dhabi court told

Bounced cheques: An employee claims his boss made him sign a Dh233,000 cheque against his will.

The owner of a mobile-phone shop forced an employee to write a cheque for Dh233,000 that bounced, an Abu Dhabi court heard yesterday.

J A, from Yemen, said he had to sign the cheque after an Afghan man he entrusted to sell goods ran away.

The case was adjourned to April 14.
