Duo hood­wink busi­ness­man, swin­dle Dh1.9m

Gulf News - - Nation -

Two

men have been ac­cused of hood­wink­ing a busi­ness­man and swin­dling Dh1.9 mil­lion in a dodgy deal to sell de­sali­na­tion de­vices to two govern­ment de­part­ments.

In 2016, the Ital­ian busi­ness­man was in­tro­duced to his coun­try­man trader, who of­fered to win him a Dh455 mil­lion ten­der to sell de­sali­na­tion de­vices to Dubai govern­ment bod­ies. The trader in­tro­duced him to an Emi­rati em­ployee in this re­gard.

The busi­ness­man paid a com­mis­sion of Dh1.9 mil­lion to him, but the pur­chase re­ceipts turned out to be forged. (Staff Re­port)
