April 14 2017 10:14 PM


The Court of Appeal has reviewed the case of an expatriate man convicted of misappropriating QR1.3mn while working as head of a department at a local bank, local Arabic daily Arrayah reported.
The Court of First Instance sentenced him to five years in jail and subsequent deportation, and ordered him to repay the amount. 
According to the case file, the defendant used a cheque belonging to a client of the bank and illegally transferred QR1.3mn in US dollars to his personal account. 
At the Court of Appeal his lawyer argued that the man could not be considered as an employee of the bank when the money was cashed as he had submitted his resignation two days earlier and the bank accepted it. 
The lawyer also argued that the cheque was signed by the account owner and approved by the bank. The case is still continuing at the court.
