Woman who flashed finger at Dubai police lands in court


DUBAI – A 23-year-old Kazakh woman who flashed her finger at three Dubai police officers has landed in court for assault.

At her trial this month, the woman was also charged with verbal abuse and damage of public property for the September 20 incident.

According to police, the woman was in detention at a police station in Al Qusais when she assaulted a policeman and two female police officers.

She also spat at them, insulted them and damaged the washroom of her detention cell when she punched and kicked the place.

Police said the woman ran amok when the two policewomen tried to handcuff her. Police said the woman resisted arrest.

“She beat us, spat on us and flashed her finger in our face while using abusive language. She did not want to let us put the handcuffs on her,” a policeman testified.

Forensic reports showed that the female police officers sustained bruises in various parts of their body, while their male colleague was scratched on the thigh.

A verdict is expected on February 26. ICA/Expat Media
