An Asian employee has been convicted of taking advantage of his manager’s trust by taking two checks from his office, forging his signature on them and stealing Dh940,000.

The Dubai Criminal Court sentenced him to one year in prison, fined him for stolen money and ordered his deportation after serving his sentence. The appeals court upheld the original sentence.

According to police records, the company manager testified during the investigation that the defendant was working at his company when the manager told the defendant to go to his office to retrieve his computer, and then left to go home.

The accused subsequently applied to return home. A few days later, the manager noticed two withdrawals worth Dh940,000. When he went to the bank to inquire about the two withdrawals, he learned that criminals stole two checks from his office, forged the manager’s signature, and stole the money before leaving the country.

The defendant was sentenced in absentia to a year, fined Dh940,000, and deported, arrested after he returned home after admitting his crime.

He was sentenced to the same sentence when he was present, which was upheld by the appeals court.
