A 19-year-old student has been sentenced to three months in prison and will be deported after serving his term.
The Moroccan posted pictures of women on Twitter to lure men who wanted to have sex with these women. Pretending to be a pimp, he would then ask for payment in phone credit. He has nearly 9,000 followers – more than 600 contacted him after he posted the images, but only 300 sent him credit, worth AED 8,000.
He was arrested in August. At Dubai Criminal Court, he confessed to a charge of inciting sin. He told prosecutors he pretended to be a pimp but didn’t have ‘actual prostitutes’. The police showed the court a list of money transfers from customers and details of the words used to promote sin and sex services.
