Maid 'transferred Dh7,500 from employer's mobile'

A maid transferred Dh7,500 in mobile credit from her sponsor's mobile to her own, a court heard this morning.

DUBAI // A maid transferred Dh7,500 in mobile credit from her sponsor's mobile to her own, a court heard this morning.

The Dubai Criminal Court was told that RS, a Filipina, 29, worked for an Emirati businessman, HM, 47. During her employment she allegedly used his mobile phone to make credit transfers.

After HM caught RS in March, he requested a detailed report from Etisalat that showed RS had been making the transfers since she started working for HM. The transfers totalled Dh7,500.

Prosecutors said she confessed during investigations but in court today, she denied a charge of theft. A verdict is expected on May 27.
