Dubai housemaid ordered to pay AED880,000 for stealing money from employers


- Advertisment -

A Dubai-based Ugandan housemaid has been ordered to pay an amount of AED880,000 worth of money after stealing money from her own employer. 

The housemaid, 26, whose name was withheld, has recently appeared before the Dubai Criminal Court. She was also ordered to serve a one-year jail term and will be deported after that. 

Citing court reports, the housemaid stole AED760,000, AED183,650, and AED36,425 which totaled nearly AED1 million.

She denied the charges but was convicted in court. The incident happened in September 2020, when she was still working for her Lebanese employer. 

The housemaid was also caught stealing money from the same employer in March. The couple has reportedly hidden the key to their bedroom, where they hid a large sum of money. But the maid still found a way to steal the money and left the following morning. 

She admitted to her crime during the questioning and revealed that she gave the money to a man who promised to smuggle her out of the UAE.
