Dubai: An Asian woman received Dh70,000 in damages after her son was assaulted and insulted by the son of an Arab man.
The case unfolded when the woman lodged a complaint with the Ras Al Khaimah Police, Khaleej Times reported.
The man was ordered to pay the compensation by Ras Al Khaimah Civil Court after the case was referred to public prosecution and then to the RAK Misdemeanour Court which found the Arab man’s son guilty of the charges of assault and insult.
According to medical reports, the victim sustained a fracture and deformity in his nose.
The Misdemeanour Court slapped the assaulter with a fine of Dh5,000, and referred the civil case to the court concerned which said ruling was final and irreversible since the son had been found guilty.
Since the father was the guardian of the assaulter, the court asked him to pay the damages, along with court charges and lawyer fees.
