Soil expert was dirty, police say
A soil expert in Abu Dhabi has been detained for taking a Dhs15,000 bribe from a client so he could issue him clearance papers for the importing of soil. Abu Dhabi Police yesterday said they arrested the 63-year-old man. Police also issued a cartoon demonstrating how the lab technician, who was seconded from a recruitment agency, received the cash bribe. Col Mattar Moded Al Muhairi, Director of the force’s Anti Corruption Department, said: “The technician was arrested after investigations confirmed he received the bribe.” Police said the suspect admitted to exploiting his job for personal gain and accepting a bribe.
