A 45-year-old Asian maid was apprehended and prosecuted for stealing cash and jewellery worth Dhs20,000 from her employer's house in Dubai.
The incident date back to last September, when the victim husband noticed the random disappearance of his money and his wife’s valuables throughout years of the defendant’s service at their house.
The victim claimed that the defendant had stolen not less than Dhs17,000 from his wallet and his wife's jewellery worth Dhs3,000 at various points of time during her service period in their house.
The couple didn't want to blame maid for theft without any proof so they installed surveillance cameras without her knowledge to monitor her actions.
The defendant was later caught red-handed on three different occasions stealing and was arrested and charged with robbery.
The victims testified that while they were standing at a Dubai shop’s parking spot, the defendant approached them and suddenly slapped them both and claimed to be an undercover police officer.
The victim was alerted with the sudden disappearance of two gold watches and a bracelet from his bedroom safe. All suspicion fell on the cook as he was the only one who had access to the bedroom to take care of the laundry.
In January last year the victim filed a robbery report and testified that after withdrawing money from a bank, he was followed by a gang who attacked and robbed him.
The five-member gang, comprising four men and a woman, all Asians, had entered the country on visit visas.
