Dubai Airport worker hugs arriving British girl

An Asian worker is standing trial on charges of indecent assault after he allegedly misbehaved with a British tourist at Dubai airport.

The tourist filed a complaint alleging that the 24-year-old Pakistani man attempted to embrace her inside the elevator and touched her inappropriately.

She headed to the police straight on stepping out of the elevator and lodged a complaint. The suspect was identified in a parade later.

The 26-year-old visitor, from Glasgow, approached the worker asking directions when he suggested she take the elevator and he stepped in behind her. He then asked her if she was married and tried touching her indecently, she said.

Dubai Public Prosecution has transferred the accused to criminal court on charges of indecent assault under duress and has requested for his trial in accordance with the Federal Penal Code No. 3 of 1987.
