A maid faced trial at the Dubai Court as she is accused of stealing around Dh1 million from her sponsor.
As per the details, the 26-year-old maid from Uganda has stolen Dh760,000, $50,000 (Dh183,900), and 3,000 Kuwaiti dinars (Dh36,000) — totaling Dh979,900.
The 43-year-old Lebanese housewife claimed that the accused was working at her house in Bur Dubai since March last year. She said, “I noticed she was stealing small amounts of money. I confronted her and told her to stop the theft. On the day of the incident, my husband saw the defendant going to the first floor and then returning with a black bag and stepping out of the house. The next day she escaped.”
Dubai police arrested the maid from a house in Ajman. She was reportedly hiding and waiting to be smuggled out of Dubai.
A policeman said that the maid admitted to having carried out the theft and said she had handed over the money to another suspect who left the country with the money.
The next hearing will take place on February 9th. Till then, the defendant will be kept in custody.
