DUBAI – The Ras Al Khaimah Court of Appeal has awarded an Arab man Dh20,000 compensation after a hotel cleaner peeped into his hotel suite in Ras Al Khaimah where he was staying with his wife.
The latest verdict follows an appeal by the hotel management against an earlier ruling by the RAK Civil Court ordering the management and the cleaner to pay Dh50,000 in damages.
In its appeal, the hotel management said the company cannot be held responsible for the staff’s action, and asked that the compensation be reduced to Dh5,000.
At the Court of Appeal, judges upheld a guilty verdict and ordered the cleaner and the hotel management to pay the couple Dh20,000 in compensation.
The hotel management was also ordered to pay court charges and lawyers’ fees.
The Arab man said that the incident at the hotel suite had caused his family psychological and moral trauma.
Meanwhile, he also filed a separate case against the hotel cleaner at the Ras Al Khaimah Criminal Court, which found the cleaner guilty of breaching the couple’s privacy, and sentenced him to two months in jail. ICA/Expat Media
