DUBAI // A policeman forged an official letter stating that he had not remarried after he divorced his first wife to win custody of his children, the Criminal Court heard on Thursday.

M A, 43, an Emirati, did not appear in court to enter a plea against a charge of forging an official document.

His compatriots, E M, 57 and M S, 35, also policemen, denied charges of aiding and abetting M A.

They told judges that they were unaware he had remarried after he divorced his wife EA in 2001.

Prosecutors claimed that because he was in a custody battle with his ex-wife, MA took the other two defendants with him to the personal status court in Dubai in November 2014 to testify under oath the he had never taken a second wife.

“He had always caused many problems and often called police to come to my house because he wanted to take the children away from me,” E A said in court.

Prosecutors said that the defendant had remarried in 2004.

The next hearing will be on February 25.
