She added, “At the Dubai International Airport, the suspect headed to us and took our passports and cell phones after claiming he was the representative of the recruitment office. Then he took us to a flat in Dubai, where he detained us for three days. we escaped and took a taxi to the recruitment office in Ajman.”
