With the promise of marriage, a bank employee in the UAE embezzled AED20 million ($5.4 million) to spend on her ‘lover’ and his brothers, the Abu Dhabi Criminal Court heard, according to media reports this week.

The bank where the woman works has since frozen her assets and sold all materials purchased with the money, reported Khaleej Times.

The woman in question was the head of the accounts department and a customer service manager at the bank.

The embezzlement case was first investigated in June 2017. The woman reportedly “took the pass of one of her colleagues and carried out the transaction without following protocol.”

Using the money, the woman paid off debts, indulged in luxurious car shopping and European holidays, among other things.
