(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) A 59-year-old Arab national, who works as a pesticides consultant at the Ministry of Water and Environment, has been referred to the Dubai Criminal Court, for allegedly demanding and accepting a bribe of Dh6,000, to finalise approvals for an agricultural company to import pesticides from abroad



The accused, identified as M.F.R., denied the charge in court, and the judge adjourned the hearing to February 13



The case dates back to September last year, when the sales manager of an Al Ain-based agricultural and veterinary company reported the accused to the Anti-Administrative Corruption Section of the Dubai Police. The complainant said he had made an official application for importing pesticides for a farm in Al Ain. The application was rejected and no reason was specified, the court was told



"I was surprised, when the accused, M.F.R., called me and asked me to see him outside the building of the ministry," the court heard



The two men met over lunch, where the accused allegedly told the complainant that he wanted to improve his income, and asked for a monthly payment in exchange for clearing all the applications of the complainant's company. The sales manager told his senior, who refused the deal, and asked him to call the police



The law-enforcement authority procured permission from the Public Prosecution to tap and record the conversations between the consultant and the sales manager



In the first recorded conversation, the sales manager told the accused that his request was approved and he would get Dh5,000 every month for finalising the transactions of the company. The accused refused the amount, and demanded Dh8,000. After negotiations, they settled at Dh6,000 and it was agreed that the money would be handed over within three days



Two days later, the complainant handed over Dh6,000, which was earlier photographed by the police, to the accused in the car parking area behind the premises of the ministry. Undercover policemen arrested the accused as soon as the money was handed over
