DUBAI: Dubai Police in coordination with Interpol arrested a school’s IT department ex-director who hacked its e-system and maliciously deleted data of its UAE 18 branches, police said on Thursday.

The Arab defendant made use of powers entrusted with him such as the right to access the school’s e-data. He was pinned down in Italy after the issuance of an international arrest warrant and a red notice against him.

His arrest came under directives of the Dubai Police Commander-in-Chief Major General Khalifa Abdulla Al Marri and follow-up of Assistant Commander-in-Chief of Criminal Investigation, Maj. Gen. Khalil Ibrahim Al Mansouri.

The Director of Al Barsha Police Station, Brigadier Abdul Rahim Bin Shafi’i, narrated that the school’s official contacted the police station complaining that a former director who worked there for 16 years deleted its data.

The data of the school running 18 branches around the UAE included that of the school itself and that of its students. This contributed to an impact on the course of the study process, the official revealed seeking police help.

Brigadier Bin Shafi’i explained, “The former IT director submitted his resignation and travelled out of the country then deleted all files taking advantage of his possession of all secret numbers of access to the school’s data.”
