DUBAI - Two security guards were each given three-year imprisonment by the Court of First Instance on Monday for raping a waitress.
The Pakistani guards, identified as 35-year-old M.F. and 29-year-old M.T., will be deported after serving their jail terms.
The incident happened in July last year. The 30-year-old Filipina waitress told the prosecutor that M.F. approached her as she was walking down a street in Al Muttaina area around noon.
He was holding a catalogue of photos and claimed that he worked in the advertising and fashion business. He offered to take her photographs and get them published in magazines. She was told that she would be paid for it but she turned him down at first. To convince her, he showed her some contracts bearing the names of women, mostly Filipinas. He asked her to go with him to his nearby office to sign the contract. She accompanied him later as he insisted she should have a look at the office and his work.
He took her to the ‘office’ which turned out to be a residential flat.
He stopped her from leaving after locking the door. He pushed her to a sofa and asked her to have sex with him. He forced himself on her after threatening to hurt her with the scissors he had taken from a table. He called another man, M.T., who was hiding in the bathroom. The latter also had sex with her against her will, ignoring her begging to be left alone. The pair raped her again one after another. They let her go after she promised that she would not file a complaint.
The complainant’s 31-year-old Filipina co-worker, told the prosecutor that the complainant was shaking and crying that day. She was afraid the defendants would kill her if she informed the police. An Emirati police sergeant said they arrested the accused from their apartment. The police learnt later that M.F. had raped other women also in different apartments using the same trick. The DNA of the semen stains found in the complainant matched with the defendants’.
