Ras Al Khaimah police arrested an Asian bread dealer accused of molesting a nine-year-old Emirati girl by luring her into his van and touching her body.
The unnamed man, who stood trial in the northern city on Monday, denied the charges and his lawyer said there was no evidence he molested the girl.
The lawyer told the judge that the girl’s family had refused to subject their daughter to medical tests to prove their claims, adding that this shows the defendant was innocent.
“The court adjourned sentence to February 15 after the defence lawyer said there was no proof the man molested the girl,” Emarat Alyoum daily said.
