The Dubai Criminal Court sentenced ABF, a  26-year-old Tunisian salesman, to six months in jail followed by deportation after finding him guilty of molesting a Serbian airhostess in a night club.

The victim EZ, 32, testified that on October 26, she was in the night club of a hotel with her friends.

“When I was standing near my friend, the accused came and started dancing with us. We tried to move away from him several times. We also asked him to stay away from us. He did that for about five minutes. Then he shocked me by groping my buttocks. I caught him and pushed him back. He punched me in the face with his fist. I shouted at him and burst out crying. Then the security staff came and notified the police,” she testified.

HAM, 35, Egyptian civil engineer, testified that he noticed the accused approaching the victim while dancing.  “After some time, I saw the victim holding the man and shouting at him. People intervened and stopped the two from fighting. The club’s owner caught the accused in the kitchen where he was held until police arrived,” he testified.
