Three African women have faced trial in the Court of First Instance on the charge of working in prostitution, which they admitted.
The three Ugandans (two unemployed and a tourist, aged 27, 35 and 32) were arrested in February in Naif.
The three were reported by a Nigerian national accusing them of robbing him of Dh200,000.
They denied the robbery charge in court.
"After midnight on February 29, a man complained at the police station that he was robbed by three women," a police sergeant said.
The man told the cops that he was in the defendants' flat in Al Nakheel to have sex with one of them. "He was carrying a hand bag with Dh998,339. He said he kept it near the bed and he spotted her friends stealing Dh200,000 from it".
Before the man could grab the one, with whom he was having sex, all the three women fled the place.
When they were arrested in Sharjah the accused admitted to the robbery charge. "They also confessed they were working in prostitution for Dh50.
"I saw a clip in the phone of one of them featuring their celebration of the theft in a flat rented by one of them," the sergeant said. The officer handed the flash memory over to the prosecution.
The forensic report showed that the DNA traces found on the second accused matched with the Nigerian's.
The court will hand down a verdict on June 19.
