Private company owner jailed for duping 296 Emiratis under NAFIS programme

By Emirates247

The Federal Public Prosecution ordered the imprisonment of the owner and manager of a private company, who fraudulently obtained sum of money from Emirati trainees in the company within the Nafis programme.

An investigation proved that the owner and manager of a private company that includes two employees, registered his company within the Nafis program through its digital platform to train citizens on e-commerce and commercial mediation.

The prosecution explained that the owner of the company registered 296 trainees of both sexes, and stipulated that they pay sum of money that each of them deposited in the company’s account, claiming that it was part of an initiative to donate to charity, threatening them that if they did not pay those sum, he would evaluate their training with a failure rate, and it was also found that nobody provided them direct training of scientific or practical value, which is considered a fraud to take their money unjustly, and in violation of the provisions of the Nafis Programme.
