The Fujairah Criminal Court sentenced a housemaid to 7 years in jail on arson charges.
According to the official records, the defendant had been working in her sponsor’s house for a while and on the day of the incident she brought a lighter and a flammable liquid and set fire to a cupboard containing garments in one room of the house.
The sponsor’s wife rushed to the place when she saw the smoke in the room and told her husband accordingly. The sponsor brought a fire extinguisher and was able to put out the fire before it spread to the rest of the room. He later called the police who examined the place where they found the tool used in the crime and arrested the housemaid.
