‘Tamkeen Theft’: Hotel Fakes Staff, Scams BD45,000 Out Of Labour Fund; Owner Arrested

The Public Prosecution has ordered the detention of a hotel owner and an employee for their alleged involvement in defrauding the Labour Fund, Tamkeen. The suspects are accused of creating fictitious employment contracts to claim support funds amounting to BD45,000.

According to the Head of the Financial Crimes and Money Laundering Prosecution, Tamkeen filed a complaint against the two individuals. The complaint alleged that the hotel owner and employee submitted fake employment contracts for several workers to fraudulently claim financial support from Tamkeen.

Investigations by the Anti-Corruption Crimes Department confirmed that the hotel was closed and no workers were employed. This corroborated the findings of the Tamkeen Violations Committee, which discovered the discrepancies through field visits and audits.

The suspects were questioned by the prosecution and presented with evidence against them. They were subsequently ordered to be held in pre-trial detention while investigations continued.
