A UAE expatriate has been sentenced to three months in jail for stealing Botox injections worth Dh21,000 (BD2,150) from a cosmetic clinic where she was working as a receptionist.
A police report filed by the manager of the clinic showed that the 34-year-old had stolen the injections in addition to other cosmetic products.
The incident came to light after a plastic surgeon at the clinic informed the manager that the accused had asked her to give her a Botox injection outside the clinic.
The plastic surgeon told the manager that she suspected the materials that the receptionist had in her possession were from the clinic.
An inventory of the products at the clinic was conducted and a shortage of injections worth Dh21,000 was found.
Upon examination of the CCTV cameras at the clinic, the necessary proof was acquired and a report was filed.
The ruling was handed out by the Dubai Criminal Court and the accused was fined the same amount.
She will be deported upon completion of her sentence.
