Security cameras installed inside scores of shopping malls in Dubai caught 112 men trying to harass female shoppers during Eid holidays and all of them have been arrested, the press reported on Monday.
Courts in the emirate will start hearing harassment cases against the men in August after they were caught red-handed by the cameras and guards at malls.
The defendants face charges of harassing girls and committing obscene acts in shopping malls during Eid Al Fitr holidays last week.
“They will be tried next month.
“These men took advantage of the increase in the number of women and families at shopping centres during the holidays to commit obscene acts against them,” a police source said, quoted by ‘Al Khaleej’ newspaper.
