Ajman Criminal Court has sentenced an Asian man to three months in prison for threatening to kill his business partner.

According to court records, the 42-year-old went to the store, which he owned with his compatriot, during Ramadan with a knife. The accused held the blade to the victim’s throat, saying he would murder him if he did not receive the profit money from the shop in three days.

The accused also ordered the victim not to leave the store and drove her to her residence. Once they arrived, he again threatened to kill the victim by brandishing the knife.

A witness told the Crown that he was at the residence and heard the accused uttering threats.

The accused will be deported once he has served his sentence.
