The 23-year-old salesman allegedly sneaked into the women’s restroom at his workplace and hid his mobile phone with the video mode on below the cubicles wall.

Dubai — An Indian salesman stood trial in the Dubai Court of First Instance on Sunday on the charge of breaching the modesty of a woman by filming her secretly with his hidden phone while she used the washroom.

The 23-year-old salesman allegedly sneaked into the women’s restroom at his workplace and hid his mobile phone with the video mode on below the cubicles wall.

His colleague, a Filipina, 32, said during the investigation that the incident happened at noon time on August 30 at her workplace located on 2nd December Street in Al Satwa.

“Shortly after I entered the toilet and was to use it I spotted a mobile phone kept on the wall separating the cubicles,” she told the prosecutor.

When she realised it was on video mode, she screamed and rushed outside.

“I waited at the restroom’s main door and saw the defendant coming out from the ladies’ toilet”.
The Filipina informed the security guards of the building and the accused was arrested.

On being interrogated, the defendant claimed that he was in the building when he suddenly had a stomach ache and therefore rushed to the restroom.

He said there was nobody inside and after he was done he placed his phone on video mode, on the wall separating his cubicle and the one next to it, to film a woman who was in the next toilet. After the woman left the toilet, the defendant picked up his phone and watched the recorded video. He saw in the video that the woman had noticed his phone. He then left the restroom and later received a phone call from the police.

The clip was seized and enclosed by the Public Prosecution to the case file as evidence. A verdict is expected on February 1.
