Abu Dhabi Court , Abu Dhabi , Abu Dhabi court judgement

A Lawsuit had been filed by the complainant in the Abu Dhabi Court for Family and Civil and Administrative Claims demanding that he be paid Dh340,000, the value of the car, with a 12 per cent interest. 

He further demanded an additional Dh30,000 in compensation for the damages.

As per the plaintiff he had handed over his vehicle to the defendant to sell because he trusted him as a friend and also mentioned that his friend had assured him that he would sell the car to a car showroom and later hand over the money to him.

The plaintiff in good faith handed over his vehicle to use until the defendant found a potential buyer. 

Abu Dhabi Court investigate :

The defendant then sold the car to an Abu Dhabi car showroom without informing the plaintiff and deceived the purchaser that he was the owner of the car.

The defendant did not hand the plaintiff the cash received from selling the car and kept it to himself.

The plaintiff presented evidence before the court of law, including conversations through WhatsApp, to support his claim.

Abu Dhabi Court Order to pay :

After hearing from all parties the Abu Dhabi court ordered the defendant to pay the Dh340,000 he received from selling the car to the plaintiff.

The court rejected the claim of an additional Dh30,000 in compensation for the damages from the plaintiff due to a lack of supporting evidence.

The defendant was also ordered by the Abu Dubai court to pay the plaintiff’s legal expenses.
