A gulf citizen was on trial for slapping a teenager who he claims forced a toilet door open at a mall in Fujairah.

He told the court that the teen intentionally slammed the door open while he was inside, and then started laughing with his friends.

Out of humiliation and anger, the defendant says he slapped the teen to discipline him for the "indecent act". He claimed that his intension were not to harm the minor.

The Fujairah Misdemeanour Court however neglected the defendant’s justifications and ruled against him.
