According to several reports, a Filipina expatriate in Abu Dhabi has disguised herself last Thursday, by wearing an abaya and tarha while carrying a plastic gun as she tried to rob a money exchange.
Policemen said, they were able to take the 33 year old woman into custody after one of the employees alerted them. The CCTV footage showed that she threatened the employees with the concealed weapon, which was later found out to be a plastic gun.
The woman said that she did it in order to pay her debt amounting to Dh 140,000.
Watching through the video though no face has been shown, we doubt that a Filipino has done this or will do this. We asked the Philippine embassy or the consulate to look into this matter and issue a statement if necessary.
