A Gulf national has been sentenced to 10 years prison for molesting and undressing two girls under the age of 18, according to records at the Umm Al Quwain Misdemeanour Court.

The girls — the daughters of his wife's sister — would frequently visit the accused's home as they live nearby. Their mother said he would often take one of the girls to a grocery store and suspected that something was not right.

In one conversation, one of the victims suddenly told their mother that she no longer wanted to visit her aunt's house. When asked why, she didn't respond.

The girl later told her mother's friend that the accused had molested her several times at his house. Then, the mother learnt that her other daughter also had the same experience.

The convict denied all accusations, but the court found him guilty of the charge.
