Peeping Tom to be deported from UAE

An employee of Thai Airways used his phone to record his female colleagues in the bathroom.

DUBAI // An airline employee who used his mobile phone to record his female colleagues in the toilet has been sentenced to three months in prison, to be followed by deportation.

JS, 26, from India, fixed the device in a corner of the washroom of the Thai Airways office in Al Muraqqabat in April.

One of the women noticed the mobile under the sink and checked the device, finding recordings of herself and two other workers at the office.

Police were called and found he had 12 recordings of his colleagues on the phone and 10 pornographic clips.

Dubai Criminal Court ordered the recordings and images be deleted from his device before returning it to him.
