Salesman cleared of threatening to kill wife's boss

Prosecutors said he threatened to send the man back home to India dead

A salesman was cleared of issuing death threats to his wife’s boss while they were stood at the entrance of Dubai Courts complex.

Prosecutors charged the 28-year-old Indian man with threatening to send the man home a dead body.

They said he followed the Indian businessman, 34, after he left the courtroom, blocked his way and threatened him.

“He started screaming at me then told me that if I didn't drop the case I filed against his wife, he will kill me and send me back to India a dead body, but his is not the first time he had done this,” said the businessman.

The accused did not attend court to face charges at his first hearing in December, but attended court during the second hearing and denied the charge.

Dubai Criminal Court cleared him on Wednesday.
