An ex-Nakheel executive who fled to her home country after embezzling more than $37,960 worth of tenancy contract cheques, has been sentenced in absentia to three years in prison by a UAE court, according to the Khaleej Times.

The Filipina, a former executive working at Nakheel’s Dragon Mart, was also fined the same amount by the Court of First Instance. A deportation order agains both her and an accomplice, who has also been sentenced to three years in prison.

At the time of the theft, the woman was in charge of coordinating tenancy contracts, meeting Chinese tenants and collecting the cheques from them.

Prosecution records showed that, together with her accomplice, she forged four checks, electing as the beneficiary her accomplice - an administrative secretary - who then collected the forged checks from the banks.

The alleged embezzlement was committed from January to June 2011. Both women were accused of embezzlement of public funds, forgery and use of forged documents and criminal complicity.
