The Attorney General’s Office reported Tuesday that it initiated a criminal case against a gang formation, whose members deliberately seized government funds from the state’s Food and Drug Control Centre using forged bank instruments.
The Anti-Corruption Prosecution, within the scope of the Tripoli Court of Appeal, took over investigation procedures into the seizure of funds from the Food and Drug Control Centre.
The investigator inferred that the Assistant Director of the Tadhamon Bank, Girgarish Branch, was implicated with others to falsify the values of the financial sums he was ordered to pay as financial dues to the Food and Drug Control Centre’s employees. By doing this they deliberately added financial values in the tens of thousands then submit the payment order to deduct the financial values with the assistance of the bank branch manager. The two conspirators and those who contributed with them reached the sums of money involved in the crime and seize them.
The Attorney General’s Office reported that when the investigator finished interrogating two defendants, he ordered their detention in custody. He issued a decision to arrest and bring in the assistant manager of the bank branch.
