(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The incident was reported to the police on September 3 by an Emirati national who owned a cafe where one of the accused used to work

Two men, an Egyptian and a Sudanese, stood in the dock on the charge of possession of fake 100 bills.

The 25-year-old Egyptian, identified as H.Z., and his Sudanese accomplice, 57, identified as O.Y., faced the charge of intentional possession of fake currency for circulation, in the Court of First Instance.

The incident was reported to the police on September 3 by an Emirati national who owned a cafe where the Egyptian used to work in Al Muraqqabat area.

The Emirati told the prosecutor that he met his partner around 6.30pm at an office in the cafe to go through the account books.

"I was looking for a safe key when I found 200 and other 100 notes in two drawers. The money looked suspiciously black. I called the police," he said in the investigation.

He told the police that H.Z. worked in his cafe. Three days later the owner found more 100 bills in addition to other items, belonging to H.Z. and he handed it to the police.

A police officer quoted H.Z. as denying having anything to do with the counterfeit money. "H.Z. alleged that it was O.Y. who gave him the fake bills".

The police got the owner's permission to search the cafe's warehouse where H.Z. lived.

"We found black papers not printed yet, matching the size of 100 notes in a bag, belonging to H.Z. Many fake dollar bills were found in a closet which he claimed were all given to him by O.Y.".
