Woman gets molested instead of promised job

By Eman Al Baik

A Syrian cook allegedly molested a Filipina when she accompanied him to his room, the Dubai Criminal Court heard.

The victim, JS, 27, testified that she first met the accused MNT, 34, in a restaurant in Hallmark Hotel. She told him that she was looking for a job and he promised to help her.

“On October 12 at around 11pm he called me and asked me to meet him at Al Riqqa Road. I went there and he asked me to accompany him to his accommodation to be sure of the appointment letter. I entered the room and sat on the bed. All of a sudden he took off his trousers and started kissing me while attempting to lay me down on the bed. I threatened him that if he did not stop I will scream. So, he opened the door and pushed me out,” she testified.

The court adjourned the case to March 12.
