A Frenchman is facing a trial for taking upskirt photos of shoppers at a packed Dubai mall.

Cops claim they found almost 300 sordid upskirt snaps  after arresting the 39-year-old company manager at Dubai’s Mall of the Emirates in May last year.

The seedy sex snooping first came to light when a 26-year-old Pakistani shopper reported the practice to police. 

A witness told the court that he saw the accused approach a woman and “put a bag between her thighs from behind for just seconds. I then saw him repeat the same behaviour to another woman nearby.”

He added, “The Frenchman felt the security guard coming towards him – so he took a small camera from the bag and hide it inside his pocket. The security guard asked him to hand over the camera and he did.” 

Prosecutors said that the accused confessed during an investigation to recording then watching the footage of the women. The defendant, however, denies sexual molestation.

The trial continues next month.
