Huigens, who married in January, said the Kuwait package equated to $190,483 a year, not including bonuses, which can equate to up to five months' basic salary a year. "I can't gamble and I can make full restitution to St George Bank," Huigens wrote. "I would dearly like to be able to take up my position in Kuwait as I think everyone wins. "I can repay my debts in full, work in a non-gambling country* and finally I believe I will get my life back on track much better than a term in jail would accomplish.

His best line is "everybody wins". I think most NBK customers would beg to differ!! I can't believe NBK would hire a convicted felon who stole the money while he was working as a liaison officer with his previous bank's large corporate clients!!!
I also feel the pain of NBK staff with their pathetic salaries. My advice is this: Go to Beirut, hit the tables at Casino du Liban, rack up some huge debts, steal the money from your branch vault... then sit back and wait for that promotion!
