The plaintiff has ratified all parts of the Claim and refused to pay the remaining sum of the agreed upon dowry and stated that the dowry was named as show off and not to be paid and requested that the claim be rejected after requesting to call upon his witnesses at the Sudanese embassy at Abu Dhabi which proved to be difficult. The court rejected to hear the witnesses since they are outside the country and decided to grant the respondent her right to claim the remaining sum of the dowry. The plaintiff was not satisfied with the court’s decision and therefore appalled before the Khartoum’s Appeal Court which decided to reject the appeal in summary on the ground that the document presented in support of the respondent’s claim is indeed an official document, on the face of which the plaintiff did not forward a motion of tempering with the document and for that, the respondent has proved her claim. And that is based on article 28 of the civil procedure code all terms have been met which calls for the remaining sum of the dowry to be paid on the decision number 1 S. Sh/572/2014.
