Bahrain Mirror: A Bahraini high court of appeals decided to adjourn the case of former major Adel Flaifel, in which he is accused of embezzling large amounts of money of a foreign company, until December 21, 2015.

A Bahraini court sentenced Flaifel to 3 years in prison after convicting him of embezzling one million and 250 thousand BD in a partnership contract with a foreign company.

Chief Prosecutor of the Capital Governorate, Mohammed Salah, said on April 23, 2014 that the Public Prosecution received a report about a breach of trust case against a well-known figure (Adel Flaifel) who was already questioned and imprisoned over similar cases. The defendant deceived one of the foreign companies to sign a partnership contract with a poultry company and upon agreement, the plaintiff was entitled to pay one million and 250 thousand BD as the company's capital while the defendant pays the rest of the amount which exceeds 10 million BD.

The plaintiff's company deposited the money in one of the banks, as agreed. The defendant did not fulfil his commitments and pay the due amount. The company did not begin production even after a long period of time. The defendant also made use of being in charge on the company's behalf and took all the paid amount for himself. The prosecution summoned the defendant and confronted him with the information mentioned in the report yet the defendant denied the charges brought against him and said that he spent the money for company purposes. The court; however, decided to imprison him for 3 years.
