Cop on trial over forgery of drug prescription.
DUBAI -- An Emirati policeman stood trial on Thursday in the Court of First Instance on the charge of making a suspect forge a medical prescription.
The 25-year-old defendant allegedly used the forged document, authenticated by the UAE Embassy in Damascus, by submitting it to the Public Prosecution claiming it was authentic after he was caught with 189 pills of Nitrazepam.
Many Tramadol pills were also seized from him. According to the report of the General Directorate of Criminal Evidence, the two seals stamped on the document by the UAE Embassy in Damascus and the Dh100 stamp on the back of the document are authentic.
However, the handwriting of the word Nitrazepam differed from that of the rest of medical prescription.
The defendant is believed to have made a suspect, who is still wanted, add the word to the document in the latter's handwriting.
The alleged forgery happened on February 28.
