The man who committed fraud at Awash Bank has been punished
Awash Bank said it had taken legal action following a tip-off that it had called for legal action against those involved in fraudulent scams.
“I am the bank’s agent and I will hire you. For this, each of you should deposit 15,000 birr in my bank account with the Commercial Bank of Ethiopia,” the bank said in a statement.
Burayu Temesgen Kejela, a resident of Burao, was sentenced to three years and ten months in prison and fined Birr 4,000.00 by the Burayu City District Court for accepting money from various individuals.
The swindler was exposed and could be held accountable for providing a bank slip and personal evidence that he had paid for the job.
We have seen on the official Facebook page that the bank urges other individuals who have committed similar crimes to cooperate with the evidence and protect themselves from such scammers.
Grade 12 final exams will be given from today.
The National Agency for Educational Assessment and Examinations will administer the 2013 Grade 12 General Education Completion Examination from October 29 to November 2, 2014.
In 2014, more than 600,000 students enrolled in more than 2,000 test sites.
The National Examinations Agency announced that the 12th grade national exam will be given in the next round in areas where there is a security problem.
Agency Deputy Director General Tefera Feisa said the South Wollo, North Wollo and Waghamra zones are the areas where the second round of exams will be held.
“More than 90 percent of the candidates will take the test in the first round,” he said.
In the Amhara region, there are areas that will be tested in the second round if there are any areas other than those identified as having conflict.
