An employee of a local bank-owned marketing company was sentenced to five years in jail together with a fine of BD25,000 after he was found guilty of sanctioning a loan for his own benefit on behalf of a woman without her consent. Another defendant was given three years imprisonment for his involvement in the case. The victim, an employee at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland in Bahrain was reportedly approached the first defendant and requested him to find out whether she was eligible for a loan from the bank. He took a copy of her CPR and other relevant documents and later informed her that the bank didn't accept her request. He allegedly completed the bank procedures with the help of another woman, who disguised herself to look like the victim. The second defendant, who was working as a driver in the same marketing company, has received the ATM card of the account, where the BD 25,000 loan was deposited using a fake authorisation letter. The duo made several transactions using the card and had purchased jewellery and phones. They were identified and later arrested, thanks to CCTV cameras that were installed in some of the stores from which they purchased some items. copyright
