The Court of Appeals, managed by Judge Nasser Al-Hayed, overturned the verdict of the First Instance Court on the case related to human trafficking, indecent assault and practicing prostitution in health clubs.

The higher court imposed 15 years jail rather than life imprisonment on a Bedoun and 2 Filipinos, 3 years on another Bedoun while it acquitted a citizen.


The Public Prosecution charged a citizen, 2 Filipinos and 2 Bedouns with human trafficking as they hosted 39 Filipinos who were forcefully recruited into prostitution in health clubs, in addition to benefiting from the cash that the workers earned by providing prostitution services. One of the accused was charged with indecently assaulting the workers.
