'Woman charged customers Dh100 for sex'

A woman sneaked into the country through the Oman border four years ago and has prostituted herself ever since, court hears.

DUBAI // A woman entered the country illegally from Oman four years ago and has been prostituting herself ever since, the Dubai Criminal Court heard today.

Prosecutors said that NS, a 38-year-old from Uzbekistan, charged Dh100 per visit. They claimed that the woman, who had no other job, admitted doing so "once or twice a week".

However, in court she denied prostituting herself and asked judges for a swift verdict as she has been in prison since she was arrested on April 19.

A verdict was scheduled for June 11.
