Maid in Dubai arrested for theft after 9 years of hiding

by | News

Police netted a Filipina domestic helper in Dubai who has been wanted for stealing cash and jewelry from her employer way back in 2009.

In 2009, the 40-year-old Filipina allegedly stole cash and jewelry worth Dh11,000 inside her Emirati employer’s home in Al Qusais in Dubai then escaped and stopped answering calls from her employer, reported Gulf News.

Unable to contact the maid, her employers filed an absconding case against her for failing to complete her contract with them.

The Filipina was arrested in October 2018, nine years after the alleged crime happened.

She pleaded not guilty before the Dubai Court of First Instance explaining that she ran away from her employers for being constantly humiliated and was physically abused.

The Filipina added that she only ran away because she wanted to return to the Philippines but claimed that she did not take anything from her employers.

Her lawyer added that the maid only flew to Dubai to earn some money and not to steal.

Despite this, prosecutors continued to charge the Filipina with theft.

A ruling will be heard on October 28.
