The Sharjah Police on Thursday arrested an Arab woman and a man for forcing women into prostitution and engaging in black magic.

The suspects used to bring young ladies from various Arab countries promising them good jobs and then forcing them to practice prostitution.

The police said that one of the victims, a woman, approached the police and provided necessary information about the illegal activities. She told the police that she was being threatened and forced to practice prostitution. She added that the woman suspect brought her from her home country promising her a job in a salon. But when she arrived, she was shocked to discover that she had been brought in for prostitution. Upon arrival, the suspects made her sign a receipt which said she had received Dh20,000, and used this to force her into prostitution. When she refused, they threatened to send her to jail. She said she managed to run away from them and reach the police.

Based on the information, the police formed a team to investigate the case. The team managed to locate them and raided their apartment and arrested them. While searching the flat the police came across several receipts signed by girls, copies of entry visas, alcohol bottles, mobile phones and tools used in black magic.

During interrogation the suspects confessed to the crime. The police freed the victim and referred the suspects for judgment.
