According to the official records, the school owner reported that during his work as head of public relations section in his school, the defendant stole 142 cheques from a school office.
An assistant clerk at the school testified that the defendant, who was his immediate director, came to him on the day of the incident and asked him to open a drawer beside him. He added that the defendant took an envelope containing cheques from the drawer and left the room.
