CASE LAW - R v Al Farraj
Abdulrahman Al Farraj is a Saudi Arabian national attending school full time in British Columbia. He was checked by police and produced a Kingdom of Saudi Arabia driver's licence that contained a few words of English and the balance in Arabic. Cst. Hildred of the CRD IRSU unit issued a violation ticket to Mr. Al Farraj for failing to produce a driver's licence as he did not produce a translation that would allow determination of what Mr. Al Farraj was licenced for.
Judicial Justice H. W. Gordon dismissed the ticket as the Motor Vehicle Act does not require a driver to produce a translation of their driver's licence for the police.
