She presented documents in a fake name and managed to obtain approval on her loan request with her accomplice's assistance.

A student was sentenced to one year in jail for defrauding a bank of Dh2.7 million after she submitted forged documents to get a loan.

Public prosecution records show the 30-year-old GCC woman presented forged papers to sustain her false claim that she was earning a Dh136,000 salary as a ministry employee.

The Court of First Instance convicted her of charges of fraud, forgery and use of forged documents.

It also sentenced one of the bank employees to one year in jail for aiding and abetting the woman in the crime.

The student claimed to investigators that the fraud was masterminded by the bank employee - her woman accomplice who is still at large.

She presented documents in a fake name and managed to obtain approval on her loan request with her accomplice's assistance.

It transpired during investigation that the photo she used in her loan application was not hers.

The court ruling remains subject to appeal within 15 days.
