DUBAI 30 January 2020: The Abu Dhabi Public Funds Prosecutor is investigating new criminal complaints filed by Drake & Scull International (DSI) against its former Chief Executive Officer and Vice Chairman Khaldoun Tabari, family members and other former executive managers.

Responding to 15 prior criminal complaints filed by DSI, the Abu Dhabi Public Funds Prosecutor has charged Khaldoun Tabari for misappropriation, fraud, embezzlement, intentional damage to public funds, profiteering others and forgery.

The company has been pursuing legal action against Khaldoun Tabari to get him extradited to the UAE following his arrest by Jordanian authorities at Queen Alia International Airport in Amman. The arrest followed an International arrest warrant filed by UAE authorities against Tabari that resulted in an Interpol red notice issued January 7 2020. DSI recently confirmed media reports regarding the arrest.

DSI has also filed a criminal case against Khaldoun Tabari and Zeina Tabari in Jordan.
