A family drama unfolding in Abu Dhabi Criminal Court has a stepmother and son trade incest charges against each other.
According to a report in Al Khaleej newspaper, the incident came to light when police received complaints from a head of the family that his son had raped his wife.
However, investigations revealed a muddled up situation at their home.
The man’s wife alleges that the son threatened her and forced her into a relationship.
But the son denied his step-mom’s allegations and insisted that she molested him.
And that they were in an affair for almost one-and-a-half years.
Interestingly, the father is also standing trial for beating up his son.
The court adjourned the case until September 24.
