An Asian domestic worker, aged 25, has been sentenced to a month in prison by the Misdemeanors Court in Dubai. She was practising sorcery and witchcraft against her employer to control her.
According to the details of the investigation, her employer said that she was experiencing physical and mental tiredness, after which she suspected that her maid was practising black magic to control her.
The victim had some doubts regarding her maid after she noticed some unusual behaviour and heard strange murmurs in the during night when she was in the washroom.
When the employer confronted her maid, she declined having cast any spells or black magic on her. After searching the maid’s mobile phone, she found out the maid was communicating with someone who was telling her about black magic.
The employer also found photos of voodoo and witchcraft, and a piece of cloth stained with blood was hidden in the maid’s room.
During the interrogation, the maid admitted her wrongdoing and said that she contacted with one of her relatives to communicate with a ‘spiritual man.’
Reportedly, the man asked her to pay Dh200 in exchange for spells on her behalf so that her employer does not pressurise her to work and would treat her well.
The relative then sent her a photo of the doll on Whatsapp and asked the maid to keep it on her mobile phone while insisting that it would control the behaviour of her employer.
When she was asked about the voodoo that was found in her room, she said that she brought it from her village to protect her husband from other females, as it prevents him from marrying someone else while she is away.
The domestic worker was then sent to the Misdemeanors Court, and the court judged that the accused be jailed for a month and deported from the country after the prison time.
