Three men cleared of abducting woman over relationship break up

The woman accused the men of forcing her to sign a document saying that she would owe her ex Dh150,000 if she broke up with him

Two men and their boss who were accused of abducting their boss’s former lover, assaulting her and forcing her to sign a document saying that she would owe the boss money if she broke up with him have been cleared of all charges.

The woman, 32, from Uzbekistan, said she had broken up with the Palestinian man after she realised he was married; however, she said that a Sudanese supervisor, 35, and a 25-year-old Egyptian man from his company then kidnapped her and beat her.

She also accused the Palestinian man of threatening to kill her if she broke up with him, and forcing her to sign a document saying that she would owe him Dh150,000 if she did.

Police arrested the two men who allegedly abducted and assaulted her and summoned the manager for questioning.

The Sudanese supervisor and the Egyptian man were charged with physical assault and aiding and abetting the manager, while the manager was charged with issuing death threats and obtaining a debt statement under force.

All three were charged with locking-up the woman.

The men were all acquitted from the charges.
