Sex workers jailed for stealing Dhs200k
Three prostitutes who stole Dhs200,000 from a man’s bag while he was having sex with one of them have been jailed for a year and will be deported. As previously reported by 7DAYS, their Nigerian victim was walking through Naif on February 28 with a case containing nearly Dhs1 million when he was propositioned by one of the Ugandan women. He went back to her flat, where the other two women were waiting. It was not stated whether the money was his. The man later went to Naif Police Station to report that he had been robbed. “He claimed he was carrying a bag containing Dhs998,339 and put it beside the bed and started having sex with one of the women,” a police officer said. “He claimed the other two women stole Dhs200,000 while he was busy.” The man said the women fled when he realised what was happening. Officers searched for the women, aged 27, 32 and 35, and arrested them in Sharjah. They confessed to the crime and officers found a video clip on one of their phones of them celebrating their haul.
