DUBAI // An unemployed man who forged a salary certificate with an Islamic Affairs Department stamp will faces charges of forgery and illegally obtaining a credit card.

The 38-year-old Tunisian SA did not appear at the Dubai Criminal Court this morning but prosecutors said he used the stamp to forge a salary certificate under a different name then submitted it to HTSBC bank.

After obtaining the card in May 2009 he drained it of its credit.

Prosecutors said that he confessed during interrogations.
