An African maid, 21-year-old, was jailed and referred to criminal court for robbing her employer of belongings and an amount of Dhs2,000 in Dubai.
The incident date back to last August, when the defendant decided to take advantage of the time when the victim was busy with her kids, and rob the place of whatever she can take.
The defendant searched the victim’s room and stole Dhs2,000, a phone and her passport, then gave a sudden excuse to leave the house, knowing that the victim was occupied with her children.
As soon as she left, the victim got suspicious and found out about the robbery as she searched her belongings.
A police report was filed against the defendant, who was later apprehended and charged with robbery.
The Dubai Appeals Court has upheld the ruling of a lower court that had sentenced an African cleaner to a year in prison, and a Dhs1,000 fine for robbing his colleague.
Details of the case date back to an earlier time when the plaintiff filed a lawsuit demanding the defendant to pay him Dhs60,000 in compensation for the moral and material damages he suffered, indicating that the suspect insulted him in front of his colleagues.
The case dates back to last October, when the two victims filed a robbery report, pointing out that they were assigned by their company to cash a Dhs4 million cheque and had headed out to a bank in Sheikh Zayed Road.
