ABU DHABI // A Sharjah prosecutor has been suspended by the Federal Supreme Court for not following the attorney general’s orders to take a new position.
The attorney general issued a decision to transfer the prosecutor to the Cassation Court prosecution.
However, the prosecutor was absent from duty for more than three years without a valid excuse and did not present a reason that explained his absence.
According to the case files, the prosecutor requested sick leave after the decision to transfer him was issued. He was granted a six week leave that ended on November 13, 2010. He did not return to work.
He argued that there should have been a decision issued by the federal supreme judiciary council to transfer him, therefore the attorney general’s decision was invalid.
The supreme court dismissed his argument.
