Na-Tokhang sa UAE: Filipina nanny caught with drugs in UAE
A Filipina was arrested in the United Arab Emirates after she was caught selling methamphetamine for Dh1,000, a UAE news site reported Tuesday.
UAE drug enforcement officers seized 0.24 gram of methamphetamine from the nanny, 41, during an operation last September, Gulf News reported.
The Filipina was about to give the drug to a fellow Filipino in Al Muraqabat for Dh1,000, the report said.
She pleaded not guilty when she appeared before the Dubai Court of First Instance on Monday. She told Judge Urfan Omar the drug was for her personal consumption.
Omar said the court will appoint a lawyer to defend the suspect. The court will reconvene on December 15.
