Air hostess claims 'selfie' molestation

A Tanzanian visitor has been accused of misbehaving with an air hostess onboard Emirates Airlines from Dar Al Salam to Dubai, the Dubai Criminal Court heard.

On April 24, 42-year-old, MA, requested 25-year-old air hostess for a picture together as a souvenir.

She agreed and stood next to him for the photograph.

"While taking the picture he put his arm around my shoulder, my senior saw this and rebuked him. He then requested for a selfie with me. I stood next to him and shockingly, he hugged and kissed me on the neck. I pushed him away and moved," testified the victim.

The victim complained to the airport security upon arrival at the airport.

The passenger was arrested and when confronted he admitted putting his arm around her shoulder and molesting her.

The court will reconvene on July 24.
