A Bahraini labour court has issued a verdict in favour of an Asian expatriate, ordering his employer to pay him nearly BD9,000 in compensation, a local media report said.

The employer, a commercial company, was found guilty of arbitrarily expelling the expatriate from his job after seven years of employment.

The court turned down a claim by the employer that the employee, a sales agent, had been sacked after he had embezzled money from the firm’s sales, Akhbar Al Khaleej reported.

Documents provided by the company to the court were found to be false, a lawyer said. A forgery expert concluded that the documents were fake.
