Expat in police custody for misappropriating company money

The Criminal Security Sector of the Ministry of Interior has referred an unidentified expatriate to the Public Prosecution for allegedly misappropriating 56 thousand dinars from his employer.

The suspect reportedly approved checks for purchasing items on behalf of his employer but siphoned the money to his personal account in his home country, reports Al-Anba daily.

According to a security source, information gathered by the Criminal Investigation Department indicated that the expatriate, employed as an accountant in an educational agency, fabricated purchase records and then redirected check payments into his own account.

During interrogation, the suspect has reportedly confessed to orchestrating this scheme over the past few years –creating purchase orders, signing checks, and rerouting funds to his account.

CID men are intensifying efforts to arrest the man’s accomplices, if any. They confirmed that the accused had transferred substantial sums abroad, far exceeding his legitimate salary. It remains unclear whether the expatriate’s employer has initiated any formal complaint or report. Nevertheless, the accused has been taken into custody.
