(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Eight other Emirates Transport employees, including five Indians, one Sudanese and two Pakistanis, were also charged with being an accessory to the crime.

Emirates Transport employees falsified electronic data pertaining to the tyres in the company's system.

A software programmer and a purchase coordinator, who were both employed with Emirates Transport, have been sentenced to five years in prison each for embezzling tyres worth more than Dh16 million.

The two accused, who are Pakistani nationals, T.M. and M.E., aged 36 and 55, are also accused in the Court of First Instance of falsifying electronic data pertaining to the tyres in the company's electronic system.

Eight other Emirates Transport employees, including five Indians, one Sudanese and two Pakistanis, were also charged in court with being an accessory to the crime.

Of these eight, six were convicted, while two were cleared of all charges.

These accused held positions such as manager assistant, warehouse keeper and PRO, as per court records.

The six convicts were ordered to pay fines ranging from Dh895,000 to Dh3.8 million and repay the amounts they were charged with embezzling.

All accused are described as public employees in the prosecution charge sheet.

T.M. was ordered to pay a Dh415,000 fine and repay the embezzled amount to Emirates Transport.

The court ordered that all the convicted defendants be deported after serving their prison time.

A legal consultant told the investigating prosecutor that the embezzlement was discovered after the software programmer logged on to the company's electronic system to falsify the data pertaining to spare parts.

"The Information Department kept him under close watch and it was learnt that the company's financial discrepancies were caused due to what the programmer was doing."

The defendant was not entitled to log on to the warehouse software, the consultant said.

The verdict is subject to appeal within 15 days.
