A former sales manager at a trading firm has been charged with embezzling more than Dh205,000 worth of cooking oil.
The 42-year-old Indian is accused of stealing the company goods over a period between 2014 and 2015.He is facing embezzlement charges in the Court of First Instance.
“The accused had been working for the trading company since 2013 as export sales manager,” said a legal consultant working with the plaintiff.
“In January 2016, as we were going through the accounts and bills of goods in order to give copies of those bills to our customers to check whether they matched with the merchandise delivered to them, one of the businesses objected that they had not received the goods listed in three bills issued in March 2015,” the consultant said in his statement during the public prosecution investigation.
When the defendant was summoned and confronted with what the said business mentioned about those bills, he admitted that he embezzled the money.
