By Eman Al Baik

FJ, who was sentenced last week to 10 years in jail for raping a woman he came to know via ‘WhatsApp’, received another six months in jail for pulling a woman by her leg into his car after asking her to give him her CV to find her a job, threatened her and robbed her mobile.

According to the records, FJ pretended to be capable of finding ZM a job in RTA via senior staff he claimed he know and he asked her to meet him to give him her CV.

“I met him as he had asked me to give him my CV. I rode in his car and while he drove, he asked me to have sex with him. I refused and asked him to drop me back to my car but he did not listen to me. While driving, I tried to open the doors but he held my hand and calmed me down and drove me back to my car. When I was about to get off his car, he snatched my bag which had a mobile phone and Dh2,400. He also threatened to publish my pictures if I refused to have sex with him,” she testified.

ZM recognized her tormentor, FJ, 31, Emirati, when shown to her via an identification parade.

The Prosecution accused him of robbery and making threats.

FJ he was searched by the police on Dubai-Al Ain Road for a rape allegation. When police spotted his car and stopped him, he was accompanied by  a woman who told policemen that he had just raped her after claiming to help her to get a job in the Armed Forces via his sisters who worked there.
