7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

A woman has told of how a friend be­came ob­sessed with her and threat­ened to “cut her head off her body” un­less she agreed to marry him, writes Nawal Al Ramahi. The Be­laru­sian, 29, said the In­dian com­pany man­ager, 41, claimed he was mafia and she should “call me if you want to save your life”. Dubai Court of First In­stance heard the pair had been friends for three years but that turned sour af­ter he be­came ob­sessed with her and be­gan drink­ing heav­ily. The sus­pect went on trial at Dubai Court of First In­stance yes­ter­day. He al­legedly sent the woman a mes­sage that read: “I will kill you and kill ev­ery­one and I’m happy to go to jail. “Call me if you want to save your life. You bet­ter call me and you know that I can find out where you are as you know I’m from the mafia. I will cut your head off your body be­fore I let you marry an­other.” The de­fen­dant ad­mit­ted his crime in court yes­ter­day: “I was wrong to do so.” He also stated that he is mar­ried. The vic­tim said she stopped talk­ing to him since the start of this year. She said: “His be­hav­iour changed to­tally. He started to drink lots of al­co­hol, get an­gry all the time and he be­came ag­gres­sive.” The vic­tim said her ex-friend tried to force his way into her apart­ment in Al Bar­sha on July 14 at 10pm and it was then that she called po­lice. The case will re­con­vene on Novem­ber 1.
