Woman jailed and fined for assault in UAE residential building

In a recent ruling by the Fujairah Federal Court, a woman has been sentenced to two months in prison and fined Dh3,000 for assaulting a man in a residential building. The victim, who suffered injuries, was unable to work for over 20 days, prompting legal action.

The incident unfolded as the woman allegedly verbally abused and physically attacked the man without provocation. Despite initially admitting to the charges, she later retracted her statements during the investigation, claiming self-defense.

The court, ruling in absentia, expressed satisfaction with the evidence, including the victim’s account and the accused’s admission to scratching the man’s face. Alongside the prison term and fine, a legally prescribed judicial fee was imposed. The verdict highlights the legal consequences for assault in the UAE.
