The Dubai Public Prosecution referred a delegate working in an advocates and legal consultancy office to the Criminal Court on charges of stealing Dhs190,000.
The defendant had filled in three cheques before he signed them and submitted them to the bank as cheques issued by the victim, the office owner.
Counselor Fahd Abdul Aziz Al Zarouni, Chief Prosecutor at the Deira Prosecution, said the prosecution’s investigations showed that the defendant was following up the execution orders in Dubai Courts and two weeks before the complaint was filed, his service in the office was terminated by mutual consent and he was handed over his full dues amounting to Dhs22,000. Later, his residency and labour card were cancelled accordingly.
The investigations revealed that the defendant had planned to rob the victim on retaliatory step and had decided to flee back home on the same day of the incident. His plan, however, failed because the victim discovered the defendant’s withdrawal of money from the bank through the bank’s two text messages he received on his phone stating the withdrawal of Dhs80,000 and Dhs100,000 respectively.
With the help of the office accountant, the victim found that the defendant took two blank cheques from his cheque-book together with 4 others for his personal use. Accordingly, the victim filed a complaint immediately as regards the theft and forgery.
On interrogation, the defendant confessed to having stolen the cheques and having submitted two cheques with forged signature to the bank.
