According to Sultan, initial investigations indicated that the two male employees embezzled quantities of prescription drugs, with the help of their female supervisor. “More than 1,000 tablets and other medical substances were found at the first defendant’s residence.
The Public Prosecution launched its investigations into the incident and interrogated the suspects, who confessed to the charges,” the prosecutor explained.
The defendants admitted to taking advantage of their jobs at the pharmacy, as well as the lack of supervision and inventory procedures, in order to embezzle different types of medicines for their personal use and to distribute among relatives and acquaintances.
“They admitted that they have done this with the knowledge and consent of their female supervisor, the third suspect,” he concluded.
