A 31-year-old Indonesian domestic worker admitted in Dubai Court of First Instance on Sunday to taking indecent pictures with her mobile phone of her employer’s three-year-old daughter.

On November 1, the maid’s employer, a 40-year-old Iraqi woman, reported to the police that she had found pornographic pictures, including some of her daughter’s genitals, stored in the Indonesian woman’s mobile phones, Khaleej Times reported.

The domestic worker, who is facing charges of molestation and spreading explicit content, was also accused of having sent the indecent pictures of her employer’s daughter to her husband, ex-husband, cousin and a male friend through social-media platforms such as Facebook, WhatsApp and Imo.

The employer told prosecutors that she had hired the woman last May on the condition of not carrying a mobile phone. However, the maid was found to have two mobile phones two months later.

The domestic worker admitted to the charges in court on Sunday. The case was adjourned until January 21, The National reported.

In Hong Kong on September 12, 2016, a 35-year-old Indonesian domestic worker was arrested for allegedly taking indecent photos of her employer’s one-year-old son. On December 4 last year, a 28-year-old Indonesian maid in Hong Kong was arrested for allegedly videotaping her employer’s three children bathing and sending the videos to social-media platforms.
