Dubai [UAE], June 5 (ANI): Two Chinese businessmen working in United Arab Emirates's Dubai have been accused of threatening to kill a local trader over a financial dispute.
The 34-year-old Emirati trader was a partner in a commercial licensing firm with the Chinese businessmen, Gulf News reported citing a Dubai court.
Earlier in March, the Emirati trader went to meet the Chinese defendant at a local cafe to sort out some work-related issues. During the discussion, the Chinese businessmen threatened to kill the Dubai trader following a heated argument.
"He (the first defendant) came with the second defendant to the parking lot of a cafe. After a heated argument, I told the defendant that I will take legal action against him. As the witness translated my words, the two defendants threatened to kill me," said the Emirati merchant on record.
Emirati merchant has filed a complaint at a local police station. A 35-year-old witness who was translating the conversation for the Emirati trader later testified for him.
According to the Gulf News, Dubai Public Prosecution has charged the two Chinese defendants, both aged 34, with issuing threats.
