Cheque case: Thushar trying for relaxation in bail conditions to leave UAE
Dubai: National Democratic Alliances (NDA) Kerala convenor and BDJS chief Thushar Vellapally, facing a cheque bounce case in the UAE is trying to get relaxation in bail conditions in order to leave for Kerala. It is reported that Thushar has planned to submit the passport of a UAE citizen to get relaxation in bail conditions. He will file a plea in Ajman court in this regard on Tuesday.
Ajman court granted conditional bail to Thushar directing him not to leave UAE before the settlement of the case. Hence, the court asked him to surrender his passport. But now, he is trying to leave for Kerala by seeking relaxation in bail conditions.
Thushar has received legal advice that he can leave UAE after surrendering a UAE citizen’s passport in the court. A power of attorney of the case has already been issued in the name of a UAE citizen who is a friend of Thushar. This will be presented before the court in order to retrieve Thushar's passport.
However, it is reported that the trial procedures will take longer than expected. Attempts to settlement in the case outside and inside the court failed. In this situation, Thushar is seeking a way to leave UAE.
Apart from personal recognisance bail, more money should be paid to the court. Earlier, businessman MA Yusuf Ali has paid the money for Thushar’s bail. Yusuf Ali’s advocates are appearing for Thushar in the case.
The case was filed in the UAE by Nazil Abdullah, a Keralite, with whom Thushar had entered into a sub-contracting agreement a decade ago. The company was later wound up. Nazil claimed Thushar owed money to his creditors and the cheques that he gave bounced.
