The 31-year-old driver had been banned from entering UAE but somehow could enter through Oman illegally. He tried to evade arrest when stopped by a police lieutenant by showing his brother's Emirates ID card.
He has been charged at the Court of First Instance with using another person's authentic personal document and impersonation of another person during a police questioning.
The incident took place on October 23, last year, and was reported to Al Qusais police station.
"I arrested the defendant about 11pm on October 23, 2017, in Al Baraha area. He showed an ID card upon my order. After taking him into custody and checking his card, we found it belonged to his brother," a police lieutenant told the prosecutor.
The lieutenant added that the accused confessed he used his brother's identification document to mislead the police as he had been deported and illegally infiltrated later though Oman. A court ruling will be issued on April 22.
