ABU DHABI // A case against two policemen, alleged to have tortured a defendant, has been thrown out by the Federal Supreme Court.
The accused worked at the forensics department of Ajman Police, and on August 2, 2009 they allegedly took advantage of their authority and abused the victim, causing injuries.
The Ajman First Instance Court cleared them of their charges and public prosecution appealed.
Ajman Appeals Court rejected their appeal and the heirs of the victim took the case to the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court said that according to article 244 of the penal procedures law: “public prosecution, or the convicted or one filing for compensation has the right to appeal through cassation ...”
As the charges against the policemen did not involve blood money, the case was ruled to have been raised by unconcerned parties.
