DUBAI // Two brothers got into a fight in a mall after the wife of one accused the other of assaulting her, the Dubai Court of Misdemeanours heard.

Egyptian R A, 36, told prosecutors that she was with her children and husband, A E A, 34, at Mall of the Emirates on January 11 this year when she said she was assaulted by her brother-in-law, A A, 46.

“When my husband heard my screams he engaged in a fight with his brother,” she said.

A A denied his sister-in-law’s claims and told prosecutors that he had met her and A E A by coincidence.

When he went to talk to A E A, he attacked him with a stick.

“I was talking to him about wages but he hit me with a stick, then his wife started insulting me,” A A said.

A E A said neither he nor his wife had hit his brother.

The two men were each charged with assaulting the other, which both denied. The next hearing will be on January 6.
