An insolvent cleaner lurked in a washroom ceiling, filmed his flatmate and publicised the clips in retaliation for the latter’s decision to relocate, a gathering heard on Monday.
The Asian cleaner, 30, was referred to the Criminal Court for breaching the modesty of the Pakistani deliveryman, 22, by using a mobile phone to make explicit videos on Jan.2, as per Bur Dubai Police Station records.
Prosecutors additionally accused the cleaner of misusing a telecom service to wage an assault on the deliveryman’s privacy inside the washroom in Al Satwa area. He skipped court questioning. The ruling will be on June 20.
The victim narrated that the defendant was his longtime friend since they met in Pakistan. While staying together in Dubai in December, the defendant borrowed money from several friends and failed to meet obligations.
Those friends started frequenting the flat to demand back their money. The victim felt uncomfortable with the daily situation and notified the defendant that he would relocate. The defendant stopped him.
“He threatened that I would regret. I ignored his threats and relocated to another residence. Days later, I was stunned to see various people residing abroad Whatsapping me videos showing me bathing in the bathroom.
“They told me the defendant was the one who shared the videos with them,” he complained adding that he immediately headed to the Bur Dubai Police Station. “I had done nothing wrong to him apart from relocating.
“There was no dispute between me and him. I feel embarrassed most especially as the videos were publicised among people who know me. He was not suffering from any mental illness nor had I seen him taking drugs.”
The victim supposed the defendant fixed his mobile in a corner with its camera on. However, the defendant told police that following a dispute over rent, he stealthily climbed into the ceiling and filmed him as he bathed.
