A United Arab Emirates (UAE) court sentenced two Indians to three years in jail on Wednesday for the human trafficking and illegal confinement of a Filipina last year.
According to a report of the news site Khaleej Times on Thursday, the two Indians — a 42-year-old trader and a 26-year-old juice maker — were also ordered deported after serving their prison terms.
The businessman was also sentenced to an additional three years in jail for raping the victim, the report said.
The verdict is subject to appeal within 15 days.
Prosecution records said the two Indians duped the Filipina by offering her a secretary’s job at the trader's company.
However, when the woman arrived in the UAE in August last year on a visit visa, she was forced to work as a prostitute under coercion and intimidation until she could seek police help in September.

Court records said the Filipina worked as a prostitute for 15 days during which the businessman raped her twice.
The Filipina told the court that a woman in the Philippines made the offer on behalf of the Indians, saying that the job paid a monthly salary of Dh3,000 (P34,760).
The report said the two men welcomed the Filipina at the airport and took her to an apartment in Muraqqabat.
After a few days, the businessman forced her into prostitution to pay him back her visa and travel expenses.
The juice maker dropped her at hotels for paid sex with pleasure-seekers and would later collect the money from her. - VVP, GMA News
