Policewoman 'tricked' 50 people out of Dh3.7m

Officer allegedly collected Dh3.7 million from victims who believed they were investing in a company dealing in jewellery, perfumes and bridal gowns.

A female Emirati police officer collected Dh3.7 million from victims who believed they were investing in a company dealing in jewellery, perfumes and bridal gowns, an Ajman court will hear this month.

More than 50 people claim they contributed as much as Dh1m to MH, 36, who promised huge profits.

She later allegedly cut off contact with them. Her case will begin January 15.

Separately, she was sentenced last week to three months in prison for issuing a bad cheque for Dh222,000, while her husband received a one-year sentence for bouncing cheques to 48 people.
