An Indian man is facing trial in Dubai for allegedly sexually harassing a cleaner at his flat. He had sought her services from a cleaning company.
However, the 51-year-old Indian man, who works as a co-ordinator, denied the molestation charge at the Court of First Instance.
Though the records of the Court show the man wanted the maid to clean his house for three hours, it was alleged that he told her to clean for one hour and spend the remaining two hours with him.
The 24-year-old Filipina cleaner said, “I was assigned to go to a flat around 8.30am on July 24. The defendant let me in and then I cleaned the toilet.”
She added, “Right after that, he told me to stop and sit next to him. When I refused, he told me he had ordered my services for three hours - one for work and two to spend with him.”
Feeling scared, the domestic worker went to the bathroom where she called her manager.
The hapless lady said, “The manager told me to leave the flat, but on my way out the man touched me inappropriately.”
She went down to the reception, where her manager picked her up and called the police.
The Filipina manager said, “The worker was dropped at the defendant's flat at 8.30am in Dubai Investment Park, but at 10.15am, she called me and was whispering. She was in the bathroom and said the man wanted her to spend time with him.”
A policeman who went to arrest the accused said, “We went to the building and heard the complainant's account of what happened. When confronting the defendant, we found he was drunk.”
