Man denies raping maids, Abu Dhabi court hears

A man has been accused of raping two of his maids, but he denies the charges.

ABU DHABI // A man has denied raping two of his maids.

Prosecutors told the Criminal Court today that MS, an Emirati, called one of the maids to his room to do a chore, but instead raped her, taking her virginity.

A second maid complained that the man had also raped her and often sexually harassed her. Prosecutors told the court that forensic tests supported the claims of both maids.

The case was adjourned until January 31.
