(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) He was walking late at night with his pockets bulging with bundles of banknotes when a police patrol stopped him.

A man who offered bribe to policemen while he was walking late at night with his pockets bulging with bundles of banknotes, was found guilty and sentenced to two years in jail.

The Abu Dhabi Criminal Court convicted the man, an Asian, and also confiscated the Dh50,616 being the amount of the bribe, and slapped him with a fine of the same amount that he offered the police patrol's personnel as bribe without inexplicable reason.

The court also ordered him to be deported after serving his jail term. Investigations conducted by Finance Public Prosecution in Abu Dhabi resulted in the suspicion of a police patrol of the accused while he was wandering in the street late at night. When stopped, the police officers noticed that his pockets were bulging.

When asked, he remained tight-lipped, which prompted the cops to frisk him, and recover Dh50,616 in bundles of banknotes.

The suspect failed to explain why he was carrying such an amount of money, and instead, offered Dh10,000 as bribe to the policemen to let him go.

While they whisked him to a police station, the suspect, on the way, increased the amount of the bribe several times, eventually offering the cops the whole amount of money in his possession, and in turn, let him go.

When interrogated by the Public Prosecution, it appeared that the amount found in his possession was his.

He, however, did not explain why he had offered the bribe to policemen though having the cash with him was legal.

He was referred to the criminal court for allegedly offering bribe to civil servants. The court convicted him of bribery, and ordered him to stay behind bars for two years, fined Dh50,616 and be deported after serving his jail term.
