ServeU cleaner honoured by RTA for honesty
Taher Ali Maqbool returned 15kg gold he found while cleaning
A ServeU staff member stationed in Al Sabkha, an area close to Dubai Gold Souk, returned a bag containing 15kg of gold that he found while cleaning a parking area.
Taher Ali Maqbool contacted the Road and Transport Authority (RTA) to report and return the missing bag of gold that was estimated to be worth AED7 million by the authorities.
Gary Reader, general manager of ServeU said: “We are extremely proud of the level of integrity and uprightness present in one of our staff members, and we hope that Taher’s righteous traits are embedded in all of ServeU’s employees. Serving with integrity is what ServeU stands for, and we are pleased to see how Taher has showcased this in this peculiar incident.”
In recognition of his integrity in delivering the bag, Mattar Al Tayer, director general and chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of Dubai's RTA, as well as ServeU's management presented Maqbool with a certificate and have also rewarded him.
Maqbool, who worked in the UAE since 2013, said: “My family is poor, my father worked as a labourer, but he has always taught us to return what did not belong to us.”
