A Doha Court of Misdemeanour has sentenced an Asian expatriate to six months in jail and ordered him to pay a fine of QR5,000 for embezzling a considerable sum of money from the company where he was employed.
According to local Arabic daily Arrayah, it was the man's responsibility to collect rent from tenants using the company's properties.
Accordingly, he collected a sum of QR787,000 from two tenants and gave them a receipt on behalf of the company. However, he did not deposit the money in the company's bank account, the investigation revealed.
Company officials, too, said the investigators that they had found that the man had collected rent but not deposited the amount in the account. They also testified that they had hired an independent auditor who confirmed the embezzlement of the said amount.
In addition to the jail sentence and fine, the court ordered the convict to repay the company a sum of QR504,000.
