7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

A swim­ming in­struc­tor has been ac­cused of mo­lest­ing a 14-year-old boy who was un­der his care. Abu Dhabi Crim­i­nal Court heard how the Le­banese man­ager of a pri­vate firm touched the teenage boy’s pri­vate parts as he gave him swim­ming lessons. Of­fi­cial doc­u­ments stated that the man, an ex­pe­ri­enced swim­mer, had a sports mem­ber­ship of a ho­tel in the cap­i­tal. And when three teenage brothers, also Le­banese, reg­is­tered with the ho­tel for swim­ming lessons, the man of­fered to teach them free of charge. The boys used to go for swim­ming once or twice a week, when­ever the man was avail­able and he trained them. Pros­e­cu­tors said that one day, af­ter swim­ming, one of the boys told his fa­ther that the man touched his pri­vate parts. “The boy’s fa­ther told the po­lice af­ter his son told him he was sex­u­ally abused by his swim­ming trainer,” said pros­e­cu­tors. The de­fen­dant has de­nied the charges. The trial has been ad­journed.
