UAE: DUBAI JANITOR RAPIST GETS DEATH PENALTY

July 29, 2013: A UAE court sentenced to death a 57-year-old Indian man convicted of raping a seven-year-old girl at an Abu Dhabi school.
According to court documents, after returning home from school one day earlier this year, the victim displayed signs of sexual abuse. “Her aunt who is accustomed to giving her a bath after school, asked her to remove her trousers. Upon refusing to do so, and after her aunt’s insistence, traces of blood and semen were found in the girl’s underpants,” Hussain Al Jaziri, the plaintiff’s lawyer said during the trial’s closing arguments.
The victim had been sent to the administration office to deliver some papers by her class teacher, who was believed to have left the country days before the defendant was arrested.
Seeing her walk by, the accused, who was also a former janitor at the girl’s private school, reportedly took her into the school’s kitchen where he continued to molest her. He then threatened to kill her and her mother if she told anyone about the incident.
Lawyers had cited the girl’s unsupervised presence in the school to be the direct reason for the aggressor’s actions.
The defence team had argued that a DNA and blood test were not conducted to link the suspect to the crime. However, the accused had confessed to his crimes claiming that he possessed feelings of affection towards the victim, according to court documents.
“Hopefully this verdict will provide the victim’s family with closure and security knowing that justice was served. I also urge parents and child caretakers everywhere to promptly report any act of aggression or abuse taken against their children as refraining from reporting these incidents only protects the offender,” Al Jaziri told Gulf News. The verdict is subject to appeal. (Sources: gulfnews.com, Afp, 29/07/2013)
