The Dubai Criminal Court looked into the case of two maidservants who were charged with stealing gold and precious accessories estimated at Dhs250,000 from their sponsor’s home.
Details of the case date back to June 2021 when an Arab filed a report saying that his mother's jewellery was stolen from a wooden box.
He added that his mother asked him to bring her the jewellery from the box but he found that there was none.
He then headed to the maids’ room and searched the clothes of one of them.
He was shocked found some of the missing jewellery in a secret pocket of maid's clothes.
The maids were arrested and the court ordered their imprisonment.
During investigations, the victim testified saying, “Since 2013 and until 2018, I discovered that my gold jewellery were going missing from different places around the house, including my daughters’ jewellery as well.”
The Dubai Public Prosecution referred an Asian cook and worker, aged 35 and 41, to criminal court for breaking into an international restaurant’s tip box and stealing Dhs10,000 from it.
The suspect communicated with an Asian woman who owns a medical company to sell protective vests and told her that he could sell to her at prices lower than the institution's prices.
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.
The Ministry, on Saturday, on its official twitter account said, “In view of the announcement by the health authorities in the Federal Republic of Tanzania and the Republic of Equatorial Guinea of monitoring outbreaks of "Marburg" virus, and based on the Ministry's concern for the safety of the country's citizens, the Ministry advises to postpone travel to the Federal Republic of Tanzania and the Republic of Equatorial Guinea in this period.”
Environmental activists threw black liquid into the waters of a Roman fountain in Piazza di Spagna in the Italian capital, Rome, during a protest in which they spoke of the "end of the world" scenario.
They also do not know how to draw the attention of passersby to help them, which puts them at serious risks including death.
