Two Asian salesmen have landed in the criminal court for stealing electronic devices worth over Dhs81,000 from their workplace in Dubai. One of the suspects is a runaway accomplice.
The two suspects worked for a well-known electronics company, and had used their given authority to steal the electronics without drawing any suspicion.
They stole 13 Apple watches worth over Dhs3,000, five devices of the latest iPhone version over Dhs28,000, and seven Samsung phones worth over Dhs48,000.
The company’s legal officer testified the robbery was discovered during a random spot-checking of inventory.
When the employees noticed the missing items they immediately checked surveillance cameras and found the two suspects had stolen and hid the electronics in a backpack.
Defendants exploited a security gap in a government organisation’s website, and used their authority in transactions to renew a number of trade licences without payment of an estimated Dhs6 million fees.
An Arab businessman, with the help of a Gulf employee, fabricated a seal of a UAE bank and used it to forge a bank guarantee letter for Dhs917,000, which the first defendant used in a real estate construction deal.
The Dubai Public Prosecution referred two Asians to the criminal court for impersonating police officers, kidnapping a man and robbing him of Dhs5000 and other belongings.
The authorities have urged residents to follow official guidelines when it comes to the number of customer and ages allowed.

The eLearning environment can be a very soiled place for learning, kids sitting at home in front of their computers, connecting to their courses and learning one subject at a time. For some schools, this has been the mode. However, the cross-curricular aspect of the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme has students at IB schools connecting their eLearning across disciplines, making learning at home more engaging, exciting and tangible.
