Dubai exchange office staff steal Dh6.5 million and flee country

Hunt on for Pakistani pair after theft

Two employees of a money exchange in Dubai stole Dhs6.5 million then fled the country two days ago.

Dubai Police are looking for the Pakistani men after the theft from the exchange centre in the Naif area of Deira.

It is suspected that the pair took money from customers then pocketed it, instead of wiring it to their home country.

It is not clear if the money was embezzled over a long period of time or stolen in the days before they fled.

Naif Police station has received at least 10 reports from exchange office customers who said their money never reached their bank accounts or families in their home country.
