A Chinese visitor allegedly threatened, via a chat, to kill his compatriot if the latter, a resident of Dubai, did not return Dh200,000, the Dubai Criminal Court heard.
On November 15, 2015, the victim YL, 24, received a message from HH, 34, saying: “I do not want to end your life for Dh200,000. Should you not pay the amount back, you will be dead.”
This was during the man’s stay in Dubai.
The victim got scared and informed the police because he claims he knows that YL can convert his threat into reality.
The Dubai Prosecution supplied the court with a translation of the threat from Chinese into Arabic.
The court will give verdict on June 30.
