A young employee in a bank took advantage of his powers to receive bribes from people in exchange for illegal services, and when he married his eyes blinded by greed, he exposed his case and led him to court, according to a story published by the Public Prosecution in Dubai from the reality of its files in its important periodical “Crime and Lesson” with the aim of educating society .
The story began when the accused married and applied for a financial grant from the Marriage Fund, as he was a person with limited income.
After studying his application, he made sure that he was in the category that met the conditions and criteria, and the date of receiving the first installment of the scholarship approached, and he took the required courses.
One week before announcing the names of the grantees, the concerned authority asked him to send an account statement for his bank balances, and given that he is an employee of a bank, he prepared the statements and sent them to the Grants Affairs Director, but he was surprised that the manager told him that he did not deserve the marriage grant.
The accused revolted and went to the institution to ask them about the reason for refusing the medicine despite going through all the stages of submission and approval. The director replied that his account statements showed the deposit of large sums of money amounting to one hundred thousand dirhams in one month, which means that he has other income that he did not explain in the application such as trade or Speculation with money, which confirms that he is not a person with limited income.
The accused denied that he is a business owner who provides him with financial income other than his monthly salary, and justified the amounts deposited in his bank account, as being a “financial association” with his family and friends in the context of his preparation for the expenses of marriage, and stressed that he deserves the grant.
And between the push and pull, the director suggested that he prove his participation in that alleged association, to confirm the truth of his words, so he delayed the matter and went as far as to file a lawsuit against the institution.
As part of the investigation into his lawsuit, a surprise occurred and the matter turned against him, as he discovered that he was receiving bribes from people in exchange for illegal services he provided to them, taking advantage of his job in the bank in which he works, so legal measures were taken against him.
The lesson from this case, as the Public Prosecution affirms, is the need to be honest in work, and honesty in conducting transactions before falling into the trap of crime and regret for the consequences.
