The Dubai Criminal Court on Wednesday heard the case of two Asians, a bank manager, and a 40-year-old housewife charged with nearly 20 charges including embezzlement, profiteering, forgery and money laundering of Dhs5.2 million from bank accounts.
Details of the incident date back to 2011 and 2017, when the first suspect headed the real estate projects completion section at a bank, and used his powers to forge letters of no objection addressed to him by one of the bank officials, authorising him with the encashing of these amounts. He already encashed them and transferred them to accounts belonging to the accused suspect in another bank.
The second suspect then transferred the amounts through checques to other accounts of the first suspect with the intention of concealing the illegal source to legitimise such operations.
Then, the first suspect began embezzlement and money laundering for more than Dhs1 million, then Dhs606,000, and later he laundered sums of money between Dhs150,000 and Dhs500,000.
An unemployed African woman, 34, lured an Asian man, 33, with her accomplices and stole Dhs60,000 from his possession.
An Asian man, 48, sought the help of two policemen who he knew very well to arrest the son of his partner, 24, and force him to sign a promissory note for Dhs132,000 in financial obligations to be paid by his partner.
