(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) 64-year-old pakistani ex-cabbie?s dh46000 fine for overstaying slashed by dubai immigration department

Abdul aziz abdul hamid a 64-year-old pakistani heart patient can now look forward to having a life-saving operation thanks to the heartening action taken by the dubai immigration authorities and a khaleej times report that highlighted his predicament.


Abdul aziz abdul hamid


The sexagenarian had stayed on in dubai for a year after his visa expired which resulted in the immigrration authorities slapping him wih an over dh46000 fine.


Aziz used to run a garage after retiring as a private taxi driver in dubai.


“he worked hard all his life but due to his deteriorating health could not support us” said his elder daughter shazia abdul aziz.
a medical report by al qassimi hospital says the pakistani is ischaemic which means his heart cannot get an adequate supply of blood and suffers from inferior myocardial infarction resulting in heart blocks. in 2012 he underwent treatment when his arteries narrowed down.


“he suffers from hypertension severe systolic dysfunction and dyslipidemia (an abnormal quantity of fat in the blood)” shazia aziz said. “ti the surgery is conducted his case is critical.”


On march 31 khaleej times published a report focussing on the former cabbie’s plight.


The immigration authorities have now significantly reduced the fine so that aziz can undertake the life-saving surgery he needs immediately.


“based on the medical reports the man’s daughter submitted the directorate-general of residency and foreigners affairs in dubai has slashed the fine from over dh46000 to only dh29000” said an official who wished to remain anonymous. “the department tries its best to help in special and humanitarian cases.”


The pakistani’s critical condition has also drawn the sympathy of several good samaritans who have offered to help him out.


His daughter said the family has received around dh35000 from nearly 40 people each of whom donated between dh100 and dh10000.


“the money raised will help us pay off the fine as well as (some) hospital costs” she added.


The hospital can conduct the operation only when the visa issue is sorted. shazia aziz also said the hospital would approach charities to fund the surgery that costs dh60000.
