The employee who was working in the Credit Card department has been identified as Winia Antoine who abused her power in the department and stole the monies from the bank.
Mos said the suspect was in charge of monitoring credit cards and instead she misused her power, since Antoine was the one in charge, the warning bells did not go off when the suspect withdrew the money. Mos said the bank filed an official complaint when they realized that the employee embezzled money from the bank.
The suspect was arrested last week Friday and her detention has been extended. The suspect also confessed to stealing the money the Chief Prosecutor said.
