A Filipino accountant in Dubai has been sentenced to two years in prison for stealing more than 250,000 dirhams (US$68,605) from deposits belonging to hotel guests.

According to the Dubai Criminal Court, the 33-year-old Filipino used his personal bank account for deposits of reclaim forms filed by guests at the hotel where he worked, so the money was sent to him. The Filipino managed to pocket 252,000 dirhams from November 2017 up till July last year, The National reported.

A manager from the hotel said that they received a notice from the bank informing them about transfers from the hotel’s account to the same credit card. It was discovered that the Filipino had been replacing the credit card numbers of hotel guests with his own.

The police were informed about this in November last year and the Filipino was arrested. On April 17 at the Dubai Court of First Instance, the Filipino was accused of embezzling from his workplace, forgery and using forged documents.

During investigations, the man admitted theft, forgery and using forged documents. But in court, he denied committing the offenses.

On Tuesday, he was found guilty of all charges and sentenced to two years in prison. The Filipino will be deported once he has served his jail term.
