“His honesty, integrity and dedication reflected the honourable image of a policeman from the United Arab Emirates,” said Al Marri. “The dedicated officer performed duties in a manner reflecting good qualities of police.

“He rejected Dhs30,000 as a down payment for the first month and also rejected a sum worth Dhs50, 000 he was supposed to receive every month besides a car gift in exchange for condoning bootlegging activities.” Maj. Gen. Al Marri explained that a man who represented a gang leader whose activities spanned Muhaisna area wanted to lure the policeman into abandoning to arrest or pursue alcohol hawkers in the area.
