Fake 'government employee' jailed for raping Dubai tourist

The 22-year-old victim said that she did not know the defendant prior to the incident.

A jobless man, who kidnapped a tourist and then raped and sexually assaulted her, was sentenced to five years in jail by a Dubai court on Monday (March 18).

According to public prosecution records, the 46-year-old Bangladeshi man lied to the Pakistani woman that he worked for Dubai Municipality and threatened that he would fine her Dh500 unless she accompanied him to the police station.

The Court of First Instance found him guilty of kidnap, rape, sexual assault and impersonation of a public employee and ordered his deportation after completing his jail term.

A case was registered on October 6, last year, at the port police centre.

The 22-year-old victim said that she did not know the defendant prior to the incident.

"I arrived in the UAE to visit my sister and look for a job."

The complainant told the prosecutor that she was walking with her boyfriend on Al Mamzar beach at 6:00pm when the defendant approached them. "He showed us a card bearing his photo, claiming he was a municipality employee, and asked what we were doing there and about the nature of relation between me and my friend. He told me to accompany him to the police station and that he would fine us Dh500. My boyfriend went to his car to bring his ID."

She recounted how the defendant snatched her mobile phone from her and talked to her boyfriend and kept it with him. "He made me climb the park fence and told me not to argue with him as he was a 'government employee'.

"He made me walk on rocks in a dark place, which was very dangerous until we reached a sandy and remote location. I asked him to leave me alone but he then gagged me, pulled my hair and threatened to kill me and dump me in the sea."

 

She said that the accused ordered her to keep quiet. He made her perform a sex act on him and then raped and sexually assaulted her. He threw the victim's mobile phone at her and asked her to put her clothes on while she cried.

The woman ran to the street and hailed a cab.

The victim's boyfriend, a 28-year-old Pakistani driver, corroborated her testimony. "She was in a very bad shape when I saw her after the incident. Her hair was in a mess and clothes covered with sand; she had no shoes."

A police lieutenant said the accused knew the place, where he raped the victim, as he is a former employee at the park.

"He had returned to the UAE despite a ban order."

A forensic report confirmed that the victim was raped by the defendant.

The accused was medically checked-up at the Dubai Police health centre and he was confirmed to have Hepatitis B.
