The UAE’s Ajman Criminal Court on Wednesday convicted two foreign nationals of life time imprisonment on charges of forcing girls into prostitution.
A 38-year-old Asian man and 36-year-old Asian woman were found guilty of luring housemaids by offering them a job and also escape them from their legal sponsors, but instead forced them into prostitution.
UAE police said that two Asian girls had tried to escape from an apartment in Al Nuaimiya Tower by using bed sheets to come down from the second floor.
Police said the first lady broke her pelvis while trying in an attempt to come down from the second floor, causing excessive bleeding, while the second lady received slight injuries after falling down on a balcony of the first floor.
According to police, the scene woke up the owners of the apartment and the people started to help the two victims and evacuated them to the hospital.
Police investigations showed that the girls were locked in an apartment and were not allowed to go out, and were forced into prostitution.
