A shepherd, who bit off a chunk of the ear of his wife’s former boss following a hearing of a labour-related case in Dubai, has been jailed for six months.
The woman was sacked from the restaurant by her Sudanese boss and she lodged a lawsuit against the latter in May.
Accompanied by her 49-year-old Sudanese husband, the woman attended the hearing at the Dubai Labour Court.
After the hearing, the husband walked out behind his wife’s ex-boss, jumped on the man’s back near the entrance and bit his ear.
The man threw the defendant off his back before he saw a piece of his ear between his attacker’s teeth. The victim bled profusely and was rushed to hospital.
On Monday, a Dubai court convicted the defendant of assaulting the victim. The accused, who pleaded guilty, will be deported following the completion of his sentence.
