Global Village molester gets three months in jail

By Eman Al Baik

A salesman was convicted guilty of molesting a Filipina while she was seeking to buy some dress to cover up her legs upon the request of the Global Village security guard and was awarded three months in jail.

The Dubai Criminal Court also ordered ZH, 33, Pakistani, deportation after serving his jail term.

According to the records, GM, 31, receptionist went to the Global Village wearing a very short skirt. The security guard at the gate asked her to buy some dress and cover up her lower part from nearby shops.

“One of the salesmen was noticing what the security guard was telling me and he insisted by calling upon me to buy dress from his shop. I stepped towards his shop and so he showed me a piece of cloth that I can use to cover my lower part. He suggested wrapping the cloth around my waist and that he will teach me how to fix it. The first time he touched my breast… I thought it was by mistake. But, as he passed one of his fingers at my lower private part, I shouted and screamed and pushed him away.

I told my friend MJ with what the accused did and we reported that to the security guard who informed the police,” testified the victim.
