Human traffickers get five-year jail terms

Bassam Za’za’; 28/8/09

Three human traffickers have been jailed five years after a court convicted them of sexually exploiting a woman who fell to her death while escaping from a brothel. The Dubai Court of First Instance imprisoned the three accused, a 40-year-old Indian visitor and two Bangladeshi unemployed men, after they were found guilty of human trafficking and exploiting the unidentified woman and forcing her into the sex trade. Announcing yesterday’s verdict, Presiding Judge Hamad Abdul Latif Abdul Jawad said the trio, 40-year-old A.K. and the Bangladeshis, 26-year-old M.S. and 25-year-old S.S., will deported after serving their punishment.
