An Arab man took his Asian housemaid to court in Ras Al Khaimah for beating his two children, but quickly decided to drop the case after she said she hit the boys to stop them from playing with the power switch, a newspaper reported on Monday.
Police arrested the maid after the two boys’ parents reported that she severely beat them at their home in the Northern Emirate while they were out at work.
In court, the maid admitted she beat the two kids, but said she only wanted to prevent them from playing with the power switch.
"Her employer dropped the case after hearing the maid’s statement in court. The judge then adjourned hearings for sentence,” 'Al Khaleej' said.
