PostSubject: Pinoy gets 6 months for forgery, theft in UAE   Mon Nov 23, 2009 7:34 pm

A Filipino hotel waiter in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has been sentenced to six months in jail for stealing items from his workplace and forging a signature on a credit card receipt.

UAE-based news site Khaleej Times reported the 27-year-old Filipino, who was not named, was also ordered deported once he serves his jail term.

The UAE Court of First Instance convicted the Filipino last Thursday for stealing a credit card and ATM card issued by Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank (ADCB), three mobile phones, a watch, four sunglasses and three iPod media players last July.

He was also found guilty of spending more than Dh1,300 (P16,495) with the stolen credit card at a supermarket.

Court records showed the Filipino forged the cardholder’s signature by signing on the purchase receipt.

An Indonesian waiter at the same hotel told prosecutors that on July 7, he left his bag in the fitting room while he was on duty.

“When I finished my shift in the morning, I went to check my stuff and I found my ADCB credit card, sunglass and money missing," the Indonesian said.

A call to his bank showed his card was used at in City Supermarket for
Dh1,372 (P17,408).

On July 9, he went with police to the supermarket and checked the closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage.

“I saw a Filipino using my card. I met that Filipino two days later in our company bus," the Indonesian told prosecutors. - GMANews.TV
