An Asian cleaning worker of a bank stood trial in a Dubai court for stealing Dh10,000 from the bank.

According to court documents, the man was arrested after a woman employee at the bank complained about the incident on December 20 last year.

She told the police that she was handling cash at the bank and had left the money on a table inside the room while she had to go out of the room to answer a call. She was shocked to see the money missing when she returned to the room. The incident was reported to the police and CCTV footage was reviewed by the investigating team. The police found that the cleaner was working inside the room when the complainant left the room. The footage showed that the 32-year-old worker had stolen the money when the woman left it on the table.

When the police interrogated him with evidence, the accused confessed to stealing the money, adding that he wired Dh5,000 to his home country while keeping the rest.

The Public prosecution referred him to the criminal court.
