A bank employee who had stolen Dh600 million from his workplace after being fired was caught on a plane just as he was about to flee the country, Khaleej Times reported.

Security officers apprehended him because his name had been blacklisted and he could fly out only after he had settled the bounced cheque worth Dh15,000 case pending against him.

During interrogation, he tried to convince the officer-in-charge at the airport that they were committing a mistake as he was a “senior employee in a well-known bank”.

However, the officer told him that his name, and the unified number matched with those in the wanted list.

He settled the cheque case and tried to fly out again the next day. But the alert officers arrested him after they found out that he had transferred a huge amount of cash from the bank where he worked.

The Abu Dhabi Court of First Instance sentenced the man to 15 years in jail after he was found guilty.

The jail sentence was, however, reduced to seven years on appeal. The man and his accomplices were also ordered to refund Dh9.9 million to the bank. All the accused will be deported after serving their jail terms.
