2 Filipinos land in court over Dubai villa theft


DUBAI – Two Filipino women faced a charge of theft at the Dubai Court of First Instance after their employer accused them of stealing her valuables.

Prosecutors accused the women, aged 47 and 29, of stealing jewellery worth Dh10,000 and cash of Dh4,500 from the villa where they worked as housemaids.

They were also accused of stealing 67 pieces of clothes and shoes, mobile phone, kitchen wear, five travel bags and cosmetics.

Their Emirati employer, 33, said the maids went missing on December 7, 2018 and when she checked her personal belongings, she found the items missing.

She and her husband filed a complaint at the police station, and an arrest warrant was issued against the housemaids who have absconded.

The housemaids were later arrested and detained at Al Rashidiya police station. Police recovered the stolen items.

A verdict is expected on February 25. GAD/Expat Media
