MADINA – Police have on Sunday arrested a lawyer accused of embezzling an amount over SR4 million.
The arrest took place in front of the Administrative Court building in Madina’s Eastern Harra District. The police apprehended the lawyer, S.A, when he came out of the building.
The lawyer was arrested because he had apparently ignored a summons from the Forgery Department here.
According to reports, the lawyer allegedly stole the money on two separate occasions. He is accused of depositing two separate checks into his personal account.
Part of the cash was meant as blood money to release a Saudi man from jail who had been imprisoned for killing a man.
The lawyer has denied the accusation. He said he did give the money to the man’s family.
He is suspected of forging the signatures on the checks to allow him to deposit the money into his own bank account. – Okaz/SG
