Dubai Criminal Court has acquitted a mother of luring her two teenage daughters to the UAE and forcing them into sexual activities in a spa.


It was claimed that the mother was working in collaboration with four other men.


However, all five of the defendants were found not guilty due to lack of evidence.


Prosecutors had claimed that the 37-year-old Pakistani mother had agreed with a 41-year-old compatriot, who managed a spa, to bring her two daughters, aged below 16, and make them work as masseuses in the spa.


It was claimed that the mother and the manager coerced them to indulge in sexual activities with male clients between May 2014 and June 2016.


According to court records, an inspector w was on a routine inspection when he discovered the illegal practices at the spa.


He also discovered that one of the daughters, aged 15, had been hired as a masseuse in Al Karama.


The inspector reported the matter to the police. Three other suspects, all Pakistani, were arrested.


The mother and spa manager were tried in absentia. The other suspects  had pleaded not guilty and denied a charge of human trafficking.


And the case was thrown out because of a lack of evidence.
