An Asian man was caught on camera molesting an 11-year-old girl at a busy shopping mall in Abu Dhabi, prompting court to sentence him to one year in prison and order his deportation from the UAE, the press reported on Thursday.
The man had denied the accusations but a film submitted to court showed he was sticking behind the girl at a shop in the massive Delma mall.
Eye witnesses told court they had noticed that the man was following the girl through the mall before he came close to her and stuck to her from behind.
“Security cameras planted through the mall showing the man was clearly molesting the girl….the film incriminated the defendant and prompted the judge to convict him,” the Arabic language daily Al Bayan said.
