Trade union leader faces fraud charges.
MANAMA: A well-known trade union official is facing legal action for allegedly conning people out of thousands of dinars, it was revealed yesterday.
The suspect, who owns a shop selling electrical appliances, reportedly asked people to sell gold bars for him.
He persuaded them that they would make a lot of money from his scheme, according to a report in our sister paper Akhbar Al Khaleej.
People who joined the scheme were then asked to sign documents for debts exceeding BD15,000.
Several people who signed in later filed police complaints after discovering that they were required to sell the gold bars for between BD2,000 and BD3,000 each. The Public Prosecution questioned the suspect and remanded him in prison pending further investigations, the report added.
