An Italian man who molested a woman on a Jakarta-Dubai Emirates flight has been sentenced to four months in prison.

The 53 year old man was accused of touching the female passenger while she was asleep on the flight.

A female flight attendant testified that she saw the man remove his shirt and touch the woman’s legs while she was asleep.

After cabin crew spotted his behaviour and moved the woman to a different seat, he again tried to sit next to her.

Cabin crew then informed the police.

The defendant's lawyer had earlier argued that the man suffered from Parkinson's and that the case was outside the court's jurisdiction.
