A Dubai court has sentenced two Sri Lankans in absentia in a burglary case in which they stole money from their employer and got away.

The Dubai Criminal Court sentenced the two men to three years each in jail for stealing Dh265,000 and € 20,000 from their employers safe.

The court also sentenced a Filipino cleaner RSR, 23, to three months in prison for failing to striking a deal with the culprits to keep the incident under wraps for €, that was later found with him.

The two Sri Lankans, NRJ and RNK, was found to have made copies of their manager’s keys before they got into the office to steal the cash and their own passports.

Investigations revealed that the two exited through Dubai International airport before the incident came to light.

John Francis, a partner of the firm had earlier testified that he received a call from RSR on July 23 about seeing the two men at the company’s reception the previous night. Although he went to the office, there was no tell-tale sign of any burglary or break-ins. So he went home around 2:30pm.

But RSR called him again to inform him that he found €15,000 in the room he shared with the two Sri Lankan men. The cash, according to the cleaner, was found under the bed of NRJ.

It was then he checked the safe to find the money and the passports of the two men missing.

A Toyota Corolla car owned by the company was also missing. But the car was found in the Dubai airport’s parking lot. The two men had left the duplicate keys in the car.

During investigations, RSR confessed to his role in the crime for the €15,000 given to him and said he had agreed not to raise any alarm.

    With these qualifications and experience, these two can certainly become provincial council members and thereafter enter parliament.
