Abstract

In a judgment delivered by the Sharjah Civil Court and upheld by the UAE Federal Supreme Court, the Court held that offering and storing counterfeit goods in the UAE is a crime under the Law of Fraud in Commercial Transactions (Law No. 4 of 1979) and that intent to commit the crime is not required to be proved. It is sufficient if counterfeit goods are stocked, referred or exhibited for the crime to be complete. The intention of the accused will not be one of the conditions for the crime to constitute an offence according to the said law.
