Dubai — A 35-year-old man allegedly blackmailed his best friend’s wife and threatened to post photos and videos of them having sex online unless she paid him back the Dh30,000 he lent her, the Dubai Court of First Instance heard on Sunday.

The Indian foreman is accused of threatening the woman on the phone on different occasions in 2013 and 2014.

A police lieutenant told the prosecutor the woman’s husband reported that his wife was being blackmailed by the accused who was his best friend.

The accused reportedly admitted in the investigation that he had sex with the housewife several times and lent her a sum of money. When she refused to pay it back, he threatened he would post videos of them having sex online. He had reportedly filmed them having sex without her knowledge.

He faced charges of blackmail and making defamatory threats.

“The woman’s husband said the accused had volunteered to help resolve a problem he had with his wife. His wife later confided to him that she had a sexual relationship with the defendant in India and Dubai,” the police lieutenant said in the prosecution investigation.

A police corporal quoted the accused as admitting that he had sex with the woman in the house he shared with the couple in the Jafliyah area.

The next hearing has been set for March 29. -mary@khaleejtimes.com
