Abstract

An action had been brought by the Dubai Prosecutor's Office before the Dubai Criminal Court. In finally disposing of this matter the Dubai Court of Cassation held that the signatory of a cheque will be prosecuted for dishonouring its payment if it is returned for want of sufficient funds or if the drawer had stopped payment of the cheque or had signed the same in a manner which prevented payment. For the crime to be complete it is adequate to prove the issue of the cheque with an intention to prevent its payment.
