It was found that the first accused issued forged certificates from the training center, with the help of the second suspect.
Two Arab women are on trial at the Sharjah Criminal Court for allegedly forging certificates carrying Ministry of Health (MoH) logo.
According to public prosecution investigation, the complainant said that she received a certificate with the MoH logo on it after she paid fees for undergoing a training programme. She presented it to the ministry for making some amendments.
According to the statement of the first witness, who works at the Internal Inspection Department with the MoH, they received a certificate purportedly issued by the ministry and signed by the first accused, apart from a receipt in the name of the MoH, as fees for the document. After examining the certificate, it was found that the signature on the certificate was of the first accused who was not associated with the MoH.
When the woman who presented the certificate to the ministry was called by the ministry, she stated that she had paid the fees to a training center owned by the two accused who worked as the coordinator and secretary there. She pointed out that she was made to belief that the center had been “assigned a contract by MoH to run the course”. She said she paid Dh150 to register for the course, and Dh650 for issuance of the certificate.
The witness told the court that he was part of an investigation committee, consisting of five persons, formed to crack the case. It was found that the first accused issued forged certificates from the training center, with the help of the second suspect. The case was referred to the Preventive Security Department for further probe and later to the court.
The Sharjah Criminal Court adjourned the case to April 12.
