The 17-year-old Emirati teenager alerted his brother before filing a case at Hatta Police Station. “The defendant contacted me after he was released from jail. We used to talk about many issues until he asked me to record myself naked and send the pictures to him,” said the Emirati teenager.


However, the defendant threatened him to send his old pictures to other mutual friends as the victim refused to send more pictures. “The defendant managed to lure me four years ago with such pictures. I was afraid of his threat and informed my brother,” added the victim.

Phone seized

Dubai Police arrested the defendant, seized his mobile phone and extracted the conversation between them. Dubai Public Prosecution charged the defendant with issuing threats to defame the victim.
