Cameroonian presents forged driving licence

The Dubai Criminal Court of First Instance sentenced a Cameroonian, who used a forged driving licence that mentioned the driver’s nationality as Filipino, to three months in jail.

KTS, 26, was also ordered to be deported after serving his jail term.

According to the records, KTS insisted to a policeman who had stopped him to check his driving licence and car’s registration papers that he holds the Philippines nationality.

First Corporal Ali Saud testified that on September 28, at around 12.45, while he was managing the traffic at the arrivals area of Dubai Airport, he noticed that a Hyundai car that carried a tourist company’s logo was waiting at the passenger loading layby.

“An African driver was sitting in the car. As stopping the car there is against rules, I went to him and asked him to show his driving licence and the car’s registration paper.

“He presented a photocopy of the car’s registration paper but not his driving licence. I suspected him and when I asked him again to show his driving licence, he presented its photocopy. Checking the licence, I found out that the driver’s nationality was shown Cameroonian in English and Filipino in Arabic though he looked like an African.

“When I questioned him, he insisted that he had obtained Philippines nationality when he was there six years ago. He was taken to the office to double check the driving licence. It was found that the licence belonged to a Filipino. When confronted, the accused confessed to forging the licence. He said he had arrived in UAE two months ago and as he needed a driving licence, he had asked a compatriot to help him get one. He said he had paid Dh500 for the forged licence, “ Ali Saud testfieid.

That’s nothing. We have a Kenyan-Indonesian who insists he’s American.

But he can’t produce a paper document to prove it.

Well he can’t prove he can. And that’s all we need to know.

Any normal man would spend $10 and answer a lawsuit and have the precedent set.

Who ever said he was a normal man? Maybe there is something else he wants to hide on his birth certificate? Maybe George H.W. Bush is his real father and he doesn’t want people to know. It would make a lot of sense.

There are one or more reasons he’s hiding it.

What that is, there is no way to tell.

Nobody shucks and jives for this long. It must be significant.
