54-year-old woman beggar jailed for assaulting UAE cop
She will be deported once she serves her jail term.
A 54-year-old Arab woman has been sentenced to four months in jail for assaulting a female police officer who had seen her begging on a street in Ajman.
Records showed that the officer was patrolling a residential neighbourhood in the emirate's Al Nuaimiya area when she spotted the woman and asked her to present her ID, following the protocol of the police's anti-begging drive.
The accused insisted that she didn't have an ID and refused to cooperate with the cop. She then hit the officer, causing bruises and injuries in different parts of her body.
She was taken into custody when the back-up patrols arrived.
During the court hearing, the woman denied the assault charge but a medical report supported the officer's claim.
The Ajman Criminal Court found her guilty and ordered her deportation after the completion of her jail term.
