7 Days in Dubai - - FRONT PAGE - ali.shouk@7days.ae

An air­line pas­sen­ger pulled a flight at­ten­dant to­wards him and hugged and kissed her as he took a selfie, a court has heard. The Tan­za­nian man is ac­cused of molesting the 25-year-old Amer­i­can em­ployee on an Emi­rates Air­line flight from Dar E Salaam to Dubai on April 22, 2016. Pros­e­cu­tors told Dubai Court of First In­stance the man asked for a pic­ture with the at­ten­dant and she agreed. He then put his hands around her shoul­der and hugged her, she said. “My su­per­vi­sor yelled at the man for hug­ging me,” she said, ad­ding the man asked to take the photo again. The stew­ardess said: “I stood next to him for the shot when he hugged me again and even kissed my neck.” Po­lice were in­formed on land­ing and the pas­sen­ger was ar­rested. The de­fen­dant has yet to en­ter a plea and the case has been ad­journed. He faces up to a year in jail if con­victed.
