Saudi Interpol Arrests Expat Runaway
The Saudi Interpol brought back an expatriate accused of stealing and running away with money from the company he worked for in the Eastern province of the kingdom.
The director of the Saudi Interpol, brigadier Ali al-Obeishi, said in statements issued in the local press on Saturday that the Arab expatriate was ordered to deposit an amount of cash (number not revealed) at a local bank, but instead he left the country illegally leaving behind his passport with his sponsor.
In coordination with the international police, the Saudi Interpol monitored the runaway and his movements from one country to another until he was finally arrested and brought back to the country, he said. The runaway's movements from one place to another had not included his original country, the reports said.
Meanwhile, the Saudi Interpol warned the Saudi Arab Monetary Institution (SAMI) from forged Saudi currency intended to enter the country during the hajj (pilgrimage) season. The fake 500 riyal notes are forged by a gang in Canada, an official at the (SAMI) said in similar press statements that Saudi banks and currency exchanges usually face forgery during the hajj season.
He stressed on the importance of taking precautionary measures to stop these gangs from abusing the hajj season by the forgery of the Saudi currency. (Albawaba.com)
