Cheque case against Thushar: Compromise discussions fail
Dubai: The compromise attempts mediated by Ajman Prosecutor in the cheque bounce case against BDJS leader Thushar Vellappally failed after the plaintiff Nazil Abdullah complained that the settlement amount was too low. The out of court discussions on the issue are still progressing.
The trial of the case started in the Ajman court on Monday. The court collected information and evidence from Nazil. Thushar told the court that the cheques were stolen from him. But the court rejected this claim asking why he had not filed a complaint when it was stolen. The Prosecutor also stated that the claim cannot be accepted as a complaint was not filed at the time of the incident.
When the prosecutor asked if they were ready for a compromise, Nazil and Thushar agreed. Following this, Nazil demanded an amount to withdraw the case against Thushar. But Thushar refused to give the same and the discussions were stopped. The prosecution informed that both will be summoned after two days. The court procedures for the day came to an end with this.
Meanwhile, the out of court discussions are progressing between the business friends of Thushar and Nazil. Nazil is firm on his stand that the case will be withdrawn only if Thushar paid him the full amount on the cheque. If the case procedures are prolonged, Thushar will have to stay in UAE indefinitely. So, Nazil expects him to agree for an out of court settlement.
Thushar has already informed Nazil’s friends that he is not willing to give the amount on the cheque. Thushar has also informed them an amount he can afford to give to which Nazil has not responded yet.
