2 arrested for taking bribes for Covid results

 

DUBAI – Two Covid-19 screening centre staff in Dubai have been arrested for taking bribes to hand out negative coronavirus tests results to customers.

The Dubai Police said that the men accepted bribes from commuters travelling between Dubai and Abu Dhabi, allowing them to enter Abu Dhabi untested for Covid-19.

Anyone wishing to enter Abu Dhabi needs to present a negative Covid-19 test result at police border checkpoints.

Police said the test centre employees used images of previous negative results and gave them to those who offered bribes.

“They used photos of old negative test samples that were saved in the database,” state news agency WAM quoted police as saying.

The duo has been referred to the Emergency and Crisis Prosecution at the Federal Public Prosecution for legal action. Dubai Police did not reveal further details about the men’s identity.

They face charges of abuse of authority, accepting bribes and fraud.

A spokesman for the prosecution said that if found guilty, the duo will face jail time and a fine of between Dh150,000 and Dh750,000. ICA/Expat Media
