    HAJ, 33, a Bangladeshi security officer at Dubai International Airport, allegedly tried to swallow a 100-dollar note which he had stolen from a passenger’s handbag during inspection, causing a flight to be delayed by about half an hour, the Dubai Criminal Court heard.

    The passenger’s husband WMH, 48, American pilot, testified that on June 20 at around 2.30am he was on his way to USA on holiday with family on an Emirates flight.

    “My wife was ahead of me at the boarding gate. She was shouting at the inspector and asking him to return the money he had stolen while he was checking her handbag which contained $5,000. She told me she saw a $100 note in his hand which he dropped behind the desk and then bent down to pick it up and hid it in his trouser pocket. I asked the inspector to return the money but he denied taking it, so I went to meet his senior. We all went to the inspection room where the senior did not find anything. But I insisted on reporting the incident to the police.

    Considering how many germs are on the typical piece of paper money, they thief could well end up praying to the porcelain altar. :p
