The Debt Panel: ‘I left the UAE without paying Dh170,000 in loans but the banks won’t help me return’
The former Dubai resident went home to South Africa in 2015 after losing her job but despite receiving a job offer, she cannot take it up due to a legal case
I returned home to South Africa in February 2015 after being forced to leave Dubai by my former employer when my contract was terminated. At the time I was earning Dh15,000. I am trying to resolve my debt situation (I owe Dh170,000) from here but it seems that when a person leaves debt behind it is automatically assumed that he/she absconded and the banks refuses to negotiate an amicable solution.
