The 45-year-old Sri Lankan maid pleaded not guilty when the charges were read out by Presiding Judge Hamad Abdel Latif Abdel Jawad.

The complainant, a Sri Lankan secretary aged 47, told the prosecutors that he met the defendant in the Sri Lankan consulate in Dubai. She told him that she owned a plot for sale in their home country. They agreed that he would buy it for Dh15,000. Accordingly, he transferred Dh7,000 to her through a money exchange office.

After receiving the money, she became reluctant to transfer the property to him.

When he asked her to refund his money, she threatened to tell everybody that he had sex with her. When he said he would complain to the police, she threatened to kill him and kidnap his sons. He lodged a complaint against her at the Raffa police station on February 7.

The complainant’s wife told the prosecutors that she had heard the defendant threatening her husband. She said the maid used to call them on their home landline phone. She heard the maid threatening her husband that she would tell everyone that they had sex.

She also recalled hearing the maid threatening to kill her husband and kidnap their children after he asked his money back.
