Two Asians were sentenced by the Fujairah Criminal Court to three years in prison and a third accused was handed six-month imprisonment for trying to force a woman into prostitution after luring her with a job. A fine of Dh5,000 each was slapped on the first two suspects.
According to Emarat Al Youm daily, the court's document revealed that one of the suspects asked the woman to come to Dubai while offering her a job of a waitress for a monthly salary of Dh2,000.
When she landed here, the woman was taken aback when the man took her to an apartment, where he handed her over to another accused for Dh5,000 and tried to push her into the flesh trade. When the woman refused, they threatened and assaulted her.
Acting on a tip-off, teams from criminal investigation department (CID) stormed the apartment and arrested all the accused, and referred them to the public prosecution.
