A Doha Criminal Court has sentenced an Arab expatriate, who worked as a public relations officer (mandoob) in a private firm, to three years in jail for stealing QR300,000 that belonged to his employer, local Arabic daily Arrayah has reported.

The court also ordered his deportation when the sentence expires.

According to the details of the case, the company had given the defendant a sum of QR300,000, which was to be delivered to the accounts head for payment to another firm.

The money was given in an envelope and the defendant had to sign to confirm that he had received the sum. He would regularly perform this task in the company.

However, the other company called up after two days, saying it was yet to receive the payment. When confronted by officials of his firm, the defendant denied receiving the sum and claimed that he put the envelope among other papers in his car and was not aware it contained money.

Further, he claimed that someone might have taken the envelope from his car or it got lost.

Eventually, the court convicted him based on the investigation and the evidence and documents of the case.
