The 35-year-old victim said the accused was sponsored by him and that he had filed a case against him.
An Asian man has been charged by the Sharjah Criminal Court for threatening to kill his co-worker if he did not withdraw a civil case lodged against him.
The court heard the testimony of complainant who said that the Asian had issued death threats if he did not take back a case he filed against him at the Sharjah Civil Court. He added the man also used offensive words during a verbal duel between them.
The 35-year-old victim said the accused was sponsored by him and that he had filed a case against him. After the accused – who was detained by the police – came out of their custody, he called him by telephone and asked him to meet him.
During the meeting, the accused prodded him to drop the lawsuit. When the complainant told him that he would not do so, he threatened him with death, and also hurled abuses at him.
The victim then decided to lodge a police complaint, in order to protect himself as he felt the threats of the accused were serious.
The eyewitness told the court that on February 28, he was with the victim when the accused issued the death threats.
The accused denied all the charges.
The court adjourned the case and will hear the defence at the next hearing.
