Two policemen sentenced to five months’ in jail 
Dammam, 7th Apr 2001

  The Court of Grievances in the Eastern Province sentenced two policemen to five months’ in jail after they were convicted of abusing power and mistreating some expatriate workers.

  Dammam police received a complaint about two policemen who conducted an unauthorized raid of an apartment rented by expatriate laborers. The policemen alleged that the apartment was being used for running an illegal telephone booth.

  The two law-breaking officers threatened the laborers with various forms of punishment, beat them up and handcuffed one of them. They also seized the workers’ iqamas apparently to extort money from them.

  The two had not obtained prior authorization from higher authorities to conduct the raid or search the apartment as was required under the regulations.

  A patrol team arrived at the scene after receiving the  complaint and arrested one of the policemen. His accomplice fled, but was taken into custody later.

  A committee, comprising representatives from the police, investigation and prosecution departments, examined the evidence and decided to refer the case to the Court of Grievances.

  One of the defendants confessed to his crime. The other claimed that he was only present at the place and had no role, but later admitted that he had been involved.  The court found the two policemen guilty of misusing official position for personal gains.
