The Dubai Court of First Instance has heard the case of a manager in a Dubai company who has been accused of sexually abusing a female employee while they were inside the company’s car.
In a report on Gulf News, the 32-year-old Pakistani woman claimed that her manager touched her inappropriately and without her consent in 2017 and 2018.
Her employer also sent indecent messages on WhatsApp asking her to have an illicit affair with him.
“I was ordered to use the company car to complete transactions in government departments. The defendant escorted me about 25 times during my trips. Sometimes he used to touch my body while I was driving and I asked him to stop,” the victim said.
The complainant added that her employer did not stop touching her even in their office when there are no employees around.
“He sent me WhatsApp messages, seeking to have an illegal affair with me. I refused and he fired me in 2019,” she said.
The woman recorded a conversation with the defendant admitting that he had touched her body. The evidence was given to the Dubai Police. The employer is now facing sexual abuse charges.
