An Arab man was arrested in Ajman after allegedly collecting tuition payments from over 1,500 parents for an unlicensed school.
Several parents reported to the police station that they had paid the money and enrolled their children in the school. However, just a week after the start of the academic year, the campus closed and all of its staff, including the director, disappeared.
Authorities found that the school’s license had been suspended because it failed to meet the requirements.
According to Maj Muhammad Al Shaali, head of the Al-Jarf Comprehensive Police Station in Ajman, investigations revealed that the school did not receive permission to reopen for the new academic year.
However, the accused ignored the decision and collected school money from parents for the new school year, which began on August 29, according to Maj Al Shaali.
According to the authorities, the accused announced the start of student registration and made enticing offers to attract as many students as possible.
Investigations found that the man received the money and signed the receipts for the payments he gave to the parents. He then closed the school and fled.
Following the investigation, officials were able to locate and apprehend the accused.
The individual stated that he had opened student registration even though the school’s license had been withdrawn. He also admitted to stealing money from over 1,500 parents.
Major Muhammad Khalfan Al Shaalih advised parents to check the operating license of a school before enrolling their children. He emphasized that the Ajman Police Department will not tolerate anyone who breaks the law. BKM/ Expat Media
