Bank Employees Arrested Over Fake Sh2 billion in Kenya. Police on Tuesday evening arrested six suspects among them bank employees in association with fake Sh2 billion at Barclays Bank of Kenya Queensway branch.
Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said the phony cash was in 100 US dollar denominations. Police said the safe box belonged to Dr Erick Adede who is being confined. Bank workers Mr Boaz Ochich and Mr Charles Manzi have additionally been detained.
Barclays Bank said the arrested customer had concealed the fake currency which is against the lender’s rules.
‘The customer had concealed fake currency in his personal safe deposit box against bank rules and regulations which include restrictions of items that can be held in the safe deposit box. The contents of personal safe deposit boxes are not part of bank deposits and are only known to the client,” said the bank.
Banks offer customers safe store boxes to store essential reports, for example, title deeds, logbooks, marriage declarations, protection arrangements, gems, foreign cash, education authentications among others. Also, clients are required to make total honesty and disclosure of their assets. Above all, banks hold container spare keys and are permitted to direct review every now and then.
