DUBAI – A teacher in Sharjah has been acquitted in an abuse case against her student, with the Sharjah Appeals Court overturning an earlier verdict that found her guilty of letting her student walk barefoot.
In its recent ruling, the Sharjah Appeals Court said there was no sufficient evidence proving that the teacher forced her student to walk barefoot.
In August, the Sharjah Criminal Court had found the teacher guilty of endangering the student’s life and fined her Dh10,000.
She allegedly made the student, 14, walk barefoot after he wore inappropriate shoes to class during the May 5, 2018 incident.
During the appeals hearing, the teacher’s lawyer told the court that the teacher had repeatedly warned her student not to wear spiked footwear to school.
The lawyer said that the student became irate and insulted her before throwing his shoes at her and walking out of her classroom. ICA/Expat Media
