Gulf News - - Nation -

Awoman lawyer, who dis­fig­ured a fe­male beauty spe­cial­ist’s cheek with a glass and cursed her in a drunken rage on New Year’s Eve, has been sen­tenced to three months in jail.

The 26-year-old Ukrainian lawyer had ac­com­pa­nied her Moldovan friends, a man and a woman, to visit her coun­try­woman beauty spe­cial­ist and the lat­ter’s hus­band in their flat to cel­e­brate New Year’s Eve in Jan­uary. At around 3am, the lawyer asked the 29-year-old beauty spe­cial­ist to speak with her about a pri­vate mat­ter con­cern­ing her (vic­tim) hus­band.

The 26-year-old al­leged to the vic­tim that her hus­band had cheated on her with the Moldovan woman who was present at the party.

Not be­liev­ing her, the beauty spe­cial­ist went straight to her hus­band and con­fronted him with what the lawyer had just dis­closed to her, but the Moldovan hus­band strongly trashed the al­le­ga­tions of the 26-yearold. The Moldovan woman also de­nied when the beauty spe­cial­ist asked her if she had been hav­ing an af­fair with her hus­band. Yes­ter­day’s rul­ing re­mains sub­ject to ap­peal within 15 days.
