Jail for food court groper
An engineer had been sentenced to three months in jail after being convicted of rubbing his body against a woman in the food queue at Dubai Mall. The 30-year old Lebanese defendant pressed his body onto the Emirati woman’s back as she waited to order Chinese food. Dubai Court of First Instance ordered that he must be deported at the end of his prison sentence for sexual assault. Prosecutors said the incident took place in July 2015. The 37year old victim was with her sister ordering lunch when she said she felt someone touch her from behind. She said that when she turned around he pressed his finger to his lips and said “shhh”. He denied the incident took place. The convicted man is already appealing the verdict.
