Then, she was brought to the investigation department and interrogated about the circumstances. According to the expert report, it was a drug (Marijuana), and the weight was 3 kg 885 grams.

We have a trusting relationship with the General Consulate of Cameroon and have known each other for a long time.

Her relatives approached us for legal support, and after the meetings, they were sure that we could bring results. Our team studied the case carefully and made strategies to persuade the judge. To do that, we got a dozen pieces of information about those people who gave the bag to her and found that these people had criminal cases in Cameroon with similar circumstances.

At the beginning of 2022, a group from Uzbekistan intended to go to Saudi Arabia for a pilgrimage. Due to Covid-19 measures, direct flights were suspended. They were offered to obtain Russian passports for the agreed amount of money and reach Saudi Arabia through Dubai. Once they arrived in Dubai, and were given all agreed-on passports. Then, they were going to go to Saudi Arabia. At the airport of Dubai, the border security suspected forged passports for all 22 people. They were stopped, interrogated then arrested. They said three people invited us to Dubai and gave us all these passports. The police officers apprehended two of them, but one escaped the country. The public prosecutor decided to chase only two people, and the government deported the rest.

The two accused hired us to safeguard their rights and interest during the investigation and court stages. Our team prepared a defense for them.

During the court process, we could show many contradictory pieces of evidence between them, and their role was only to find clients for the escaped person.

The judge paid close attention to our arguments and returned the case to the public prosecutor with our opinions to take more action. Then, there was one more court hearing, and eventually, the judge decided only to deport them from the country with three months in jail, but the accused had already spent more than three months. They got home and were happy to see their families again.

We can consider this case a great result if we look at the practice for patients with forged 22 passports. They were supposed to send a long-term in prison.
