A 33-year-old Filipino clerk employed at Emirates Post is accused of allegedly embezzling Dh100,000 by under-reporting the fees companies paid for Emirates ID cards.

AA would collect the application fees then forge receipts, using one receipt in white for the customer, which had the correct amount and then filing an official receipt in pink with a lesser amount.

Prosecutors told the Dubai Criminal Court that she managed to embezzle Dh97,495 between March to October 2012 in this manner.

In court she confessed, saying she had sent the money to the Philippines to pay for the medical treatment of her sick father.

Yousuf Mohammed, 34, Director of Customer Support at Emirates Post testified that the scam came to light when employees were transferred between departments and those that took over from AA reported that some companies had under-paid for Emirates ID cards for their employees.

The companies when contacted showed their receipts. A financial audit followed and the accused was arrested.

A verdict is expected on March 27.
