DUBAI // Two men accused of forcing a woman into prostitution have been cleared by the Criminal Court.

AA, 42 from Bangladesh, and SH, 44, from Pakistan, were accused of luring a 21-year-old Pakistani woman to the country by promising her a job at a women's beauty salon, but instead forcing her to prostitute herself.

Both men denied a charge of human trafficking when they appeared in court last March.
