UAE: Woman accuses ex-boyfriend of refusing to pay back debt worth Dh542,000
She says that he had borrowed the amount from her while facing financial trouble
A woman who accused her ex-boyfriend of taking Dh542,000 from her when they were still in a relationship and refused to pay back the money, has had her case dismissed due to lack of evidence.
Official court documents reveal that the woman filed a lawsuit against the man, demanding that he return the Dh542,000 he borrowed from her.
She noted that she was in a relationship with the defendant for a long time and this made her trust him.
The woman said the man had some financial issues and asked her to lend him the money in question. She added that he promised to pay her back as soon as possible but didn’t commit to his word.
The victim said she tried to talk to him several times and ask for the money back to no avail. Later, he blocked her phone number so she couldn’t get in touch with him. This prompted her to file a complaint against him.
The woman also presented copies of a bank statement and their conversations via WhatsApp and other social media networking sites to support her claims.
In court, the man denied borrowing the cash from the woman stressing that copies of the phone conversations she presented had been forged.
His lawyer argued that the woman didn’t present any proof showing that the man borrowed the cash from her or acknowledgement of receiving the money from her.
After hearing from all parties, the Abu Dhabi Family and Civil Administrative Claims Court issued a ruling dismissing the case due to lack of sufficient evidence.
