Default and the saga finally ends....

.....today was Judgement Day.

Been waiting 6 months since my 'incident' with the police and now it's over. Got a call from my lawyers saying I need to pay damages of AED 4k for the van and a fine of AED 2k.

I was expecting AED 20k or more so this is great news.

And I'd like to thank all you lot who sent me supportive messages over the last 6 months, it's been a pretty stressful time.

Need to get passport back now and pay overstay fine then get residency.

Thanks again,
Spugsy

An expensive night out though! I bet you are so relieved at getting your passport back - I can only imagine the stress you have been under.

I think I missed this saga during my self imposed exile from the Bored, so don't know the ins and outs, but you sound well chuffed Spugs, glad you got a result you're happy with.

You only did 4k in damages to the van? What did you do, key it?

Good result though.
