7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS - @Is­mailSebu

A sex worker who posted in­de­cent pictures of her­self on Face­book and In­sta­gram to ad­ver­tise her ser­vices has been given a year in jail.

Abu Dhabi Crim­i­nal Court handed down the sen­tence to the Rus­sian woman af­ter she was found guilty of pros­ti­tu­tion and us­ing so­cial me­dia to pro­mote it.

Of­fi­cial doc­u­ments stated that Abu Dhabi Po­lice caught the woman af­ter in­ves­ti­ga­tions sug­gested she had posted pictures of her­self dressed in­ap­pro­pri­ately on In­sta­gram and on her Face­book page.

Pros­e­cu­tors said the Rus­sian had also writ­ten some cap­tions on her Face­book page ad­ver­tis­ing sex ser­vices so that in­ter­ested men could con­tact her.

An un­der­cover po­lice agent pos­ing as a cus­tomer con­tacted the woman af­ter he got her mo­bile phone through so­cial me­dia.

And when the woman came to meet the By Is­mail Se­bug­waawo of­fi­cer at a ho­tel in the cap­i­tal for sex, the woman was ar­rested.

Pros­e­cu­tors ear­lier told the court that the Rus­sian had rented an apart­ment in one of the ho­tels in the cap­i­tal, where she would take men.

The woman al­legedly con­fessed to po­lice and pros­e­cu­tors that she was en­gaged in pros­ti­tu­tion.

She de­nied charges of pros­ti­tu­tion and pro­mot­ing the sex trade.

She told Chief Jus­tice Idris bin Man­sour that her ear­lier con­fes­sions had been made un­der moral and phys­i­cal duress. But the court con­victed her based on the ev­i­dence pre­sented by pros­e­cu­tors. The woman will be de­ported af­ter serv­ing her sen­tence.
