UAE army man who spent night with underage girl jailed

By Eman Al Baik

The UAE army man boyfriend of the 13-year-old Emirati girl who asked her uncle to pick her up from a hotel in Kalba where she had stayed overnight, was sentenced to one year in jail for ‘defilement under duress’.

According to the records, the uncle, instead of taking her back to her home in Dubai, took her to a police station where she told the police that she had sex with KS overnight.

Forensic did not find sperms of the accused on the student’s body nor any sign of violence.

However, records mentioned that the accused KS admitted to having sex with the young girl.

MA told the police that this was the first time she had gone with KS to a hotel and her second meeting with him. Telling her story with KS, the young girl told investigators that her cousin MI had given her the mobile number of KS.

“I called the number and talked to KS and our relationship became stronger over time. On October 4 while I was in Mirdif City Centre at around 11pm, I got a call from him and he told me that he is in the parking lot. I got out and sat with him in the car. He kissed me several times and groped my breast. We did not have sex at that time but we agreed to meet the next day.

“At around 8pm, I went to a salon in Al Warqa area. I called KS who came to the area and I went out with him. He drove to Kalba where he booked a room in a hotel where we slept after having sex like wife and husband.  In the morning, KS went to work and left me in the room. At around 3pm, I called my uncle and asked him to drop me back home, but instead he took me to a police station,” she told investigators.

Forensic, which did not found sperms of the accused in the victim’s body, reported the young woman’s version and said it is difficult to determine whether she was sodomised or not.

Dubai Prosecution accused KS of indecent assault under duress, saying that he had kissed the victim and groped her breast against her will.
