£500,000 embezzled from National Library of ScotlandThe National Library of Scotland has admitted falling victim to a "sophisticated and complex" crime after one of its managers embezzled £500,000. IT boss David Dinham, 33, stole the money over a four-year period from 2006 when he had control over huge budgets at the historic institution. Dinham, from Edinburgh, admitted the embezzlement charge at a hearing at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last week. He is due to be sentenced on 21 June once background reports are compiled. The offence took place between 6 September 2006 and 9 June 2010
