Kenyan Saleswoman in Dubai Gets 3 Months' Jail for Stealing

A sales assistant stole a passenger’s diamond-studded watch and a silver chain while at a shop in Dubai International Airport on Oct.2 last year.

JW, a 27-year-old Kenyan, on Monday was referred to the Dubai Criminal Court on the theft charges.

“Yes I stole the watch and the silver chain,” JW confessed before Judge Hamad Abdul Jawwad.

Upon being asked for her request to the court, JW astonished the bench to seek ample time for a lawyer to defend her.

Following her confession, the court sentenced her to three months in jail.

According to records, at around 6.30am an Indian employee had discovered a small bag left at a table by a passenger.

After discovering that it contained a diamond-studded watch and a silver chain, he took the bag and its contents to a Moroccan sales assistant SM, 27.

SM had told prosecutors that at around 12.30pm she had left for a nap as JW took charge of the sales.

“After two hours I returned to work and sat waiting for an hour as employees from the lost-and-found section were not coming to collect the bag,” SM said.

She then decided to examine it again and discovered the valuables had gone missing.

SM immediately contacted investigation officers who found the valuables with JW.
