UAE
An Indian clerk has been accused of secretly filming his Filipina neighbor while inside the bathroom taking a shower, a report by Gulf News said. The 21-year-old Filipina receptionist was in the shower when she noticed a hand holding a mobile phone through the bathroom mirror sometime in October. The woman carefully looked at the culprit and confirmed that the phone was on video record mode and directed towards her. The Filipina then yelled before she saw the hand being withdrawn and removed from the exhaust fan. Court records say that the woman’s roommates rushed to the neighboring flat and banged the door before the 21-year-old Indian clerk answered the door.

Dubbed as “bachelor eviction drive”, authorities in Dubai have been cracking down against single, low-income workers residing in areas devoted for families. The Dubai Municipality implemented such measure as it believes overcrowding in apartments strain the infrastructure such as sewage, electrical systems, parking and many others. According to Dubai Municipality’s rules, bachelors are not allowed to live in residential areas. The campaign includes spot checks on homes suspected to contain bachelors — and they, rather than landlords, are responsible for paying any resulting fines for overcrowding. Violators face fines of AED 10 per square foot of property, set at minimum of AED 1,000 and ceiling of AED 50,000. The campaign got more intense in August as the municipality deployed m
