Bangladeshi woman is the latest victim of human trafficking in Dubai

On November 26, 2009

The Gulf News reported yesterday about a case of a Bangladeshi woman who was lured to the UAE with promises of a job as a housemaid. When she arrived, she was taken by a gang of three Asian men and a woman and informed that she'll be working as a prostitute. Trying to escape her traffickers, the Bangladeshi woman jumped from the balcony of a Dubai apartment where she was kept. As a result she suffered severe multiple fractures to her limbs. Ahmad Obaid Bin Hadibah, head of the combating human trafficking department at the Dubai Police, said that this is the twentieth case of human trafficking that was uncovered in Dubai this year.
