Abu Dhabi: A man filed a lawsuit before the Abu Dhabi Family Court and civil and administrative cases against an association, in which he demanded the ruling to assign an accounting expert to determine the value of his share of the 2017 reward granted to members of the board of directors of the association complained of by the general assembly.
Explaining his lawsuit, he said that he was among the members of the board of directors of the accused association, and according to a decision, the board of directors was dissolved, and another board composed of other members he was not among them was appointed, and the new board refused to hand him his share of the 2017 reward granted by the general assembly to members of the board of directors the previous assembly.
The Court of First Instance ordered the defendant to pay an amount of 532,144 dirhams, which is a reward for the profits of 2017, in addition to obligating her to pay fees and expenses.
The general assembly of the defendant decided to grant the members of the board of directors a bonus of 10% of the net profit, which is equivalent to 6 million 385 thousand and 735 dirhams, noting that it was established in the papers that the members of the board of directors numbered 12 members, including the complainant, and the reward was distributed to them equally.
The court pointed out that the defendant did not object to the complainant’s entitlement to the reward and its value and did not appeal against it in any way, and the dispute was based on the existence of financial issues between them, and the investigation is still ongoing, but it did not deny the complainant’s entitlement to the reward, which is why the defendant must be obligated to pay the complainant his share of profits.
The defendant was not satisfied with the judgment and appealed it, and the court decided to cancel the appealed judgment and the judiciary again to return the appealed case for suspension before the Court of First Instance.
The Court of Cassation clarified in the merits of its ruling that, according to the Civil Procedures Law, when one of the litigants raises a dispute subordinate to the subject matter of the litigation, a decision in it is necessary to rule on the case, noting that it is established in the papers that the Court of First Instance decided to suspend the case, commenting on a document that the complainant was accused of committing Financial violations if he works as a member of the accused association. Accordingly, it ruled to reject the appeal and obligated the complainant to pay fees and expenses.
