Bank teller in Dubai embezzled Dh326,557.

The accused had the power to open accounts without getting the branch operation manager's approval. He left the country in September 2009.

A bank teller has been charged in absentia in the Court of First Instance with embezzling Dh300,000 from his workplace. The Sri Lankan defendant is also accused of embezzling a cheque worth Dh26,557.

An audit expert said the bank is subject to the control of the Financial Control Department and the defendant is a public employee.

He said a financial report on the irregularities committed by the accused was prepared by the bank's Department of Fighting Corruption and Embezzlement. "The defendant embezzled Dh300,000 from the bank's safe with which he was entrusted."

The accused allegedly opened two bogus accounts in which he deposited Dh200,000 and Dh100,000. The defendant failed to respond to the bank's request and produce documents proving the authenticity of the accounts.

The accused had the power to open accounts without getting the branch operation manager's approval. He left the country in September 2009.
