The Dubai Court of Appeal upheld a verdict issued by the Court of First Instance sentencing a warehouse worker to nine months in jail to be followed by deportation and fining him Dhs135,000 after he was convicted of breach of trust and offering a bribe to his colleague to enable him to steal electric cables from a warehouse belonging to a company he worked for.
The case dated back to last June when a storekeeper for a major contracting company caught his assistant while trying to steal electric cables. The storekeeper stated in the investigations that his assistant offered him Dhs1,000 as a bribe in return for not reporting him and allowing him to steal cables from the warehouse of the company they worked for.
The incident, however, was reported to the company supervisor and the defendant was summoned. The defendant confessed to having offered a bribe to his immediate manager in return for not reporting the incident and to having taken a quantity of cables after disconnecting the surveillance cameras in the warehouse.
He also confessed to having stolen electric cables seven times and to sell the stolen cables to a hardware dealer, from whom he received Dhs15,000 against the last operation.
The police initiated investigation and referred the defendant to the competent authorities.
