AJMAN // A Filipina housemaid said an Egyptian man raped her as she worked at his home, Ajman Criminal Court has heard.

The maid, M R, told the judge she went to work at M M’s house and he took her to a bedroom and forced himself on her.

“He carried and took me to one of the bedrooms at his place, and fully raped me against my will,” she said.

The Egyptian defended himself before the judge, saying: “I suffer from pains in my back and in my feet and therefore I would not be able to carry her.”

Following his statement, the court on Wednesday decided to have him medically tested to see if he does suffer back and feet pain.
