DUBAI – A Pakistani clerk has been sentenced to three months in jail for kissing a 13-year-old British girl.
When asked why he kissed the victim in the lift, the 31-year-old told, “I kissed her in a fatherly manner. When she entered the lift, she looked so scared. I took her like my daughter and kissed her like a father does to his daughter. I did not have any bad intention.”
The girl told prosecutors that that the man kissed her when she took the lift up to her home which is on the sixth floor and then she ran out of the elevator when it stopped at the third floor.
The victim’s mother said, “I was at the gym when my daughter told me what happened. She told me that a stranger kissed her in the elevator of the building where we live. She seemed so frightened. We did not find the man when we went searching for him.”
Presiding judge of Dubai Court Ezzat Abdul Lat said the culprit will be deported after serving his jail term however he has been given the right to appeal within 15 days.
