An oil company worker is on the run after being accused of accepting Dh10.5 million in bribes from an insurance company.

The Canadian was reported to prosecutors by an Abu Dhabi business, which alleged he was caught accepting money from the insurer in return for accepting bids for business.

The company said the money was being paid into an account outside the country.

Prosecutors have also charged two Jordanians from the insurance company - the chief executive officer and general manager - with presenting bribes.
