    Woman Raped In Dubai, Jailed For Illegal Sex

    Woman raped in Dubai charged for having illegal sex



    Hugh Tomlinson in Dubai










    A British woman who alleged that she was raped in Dubai on New Year’s Eve has had her passport confiscated and may face a jail sentence after she was charged with having sex outside marriage with her fiancé.

    The 23-year-old woman, a Muslim from London, of Pakistani origin, said that she was attacked by a man who is understood to be a worker in the hotel where she had been drinking with her fiancé to celebrate their engagement during a three-day holiday in Dubai.

    When she reported to the police that she had been raped, she and her partner, 44, were themselves jailed for sex outside marriage, which is illegal under the emirate’s laws. Unmarried couples are not allowed to share hotel rooms or live together, although many establishments turn a blind eye. The couple were also charged with being drunk outside licensed premises.
    The alleged assault on the woman took place at the upmarket Address Hotel in the Dubai Marina district.

    After drinking heavily to celebrate the marriage proposal that evening, the woman passed out in the toilets, where she says that she was followed by a member of staff and attacked. It is unclear if the alleged rape is being investigated by police. The woman’s alleged attacker has denied rape and has claimed that sex was consensual. He has also been charged with illegal sex outside marriage.
    A spokesperson for the Address declined to comment yesterday. Dubai police also declined to comment.
    The woman’s fiancé was unaware of the incident and took her home, but when she recalled the attack the next morning they went to the police.
    It is reported that the police focused on the woman’s drinking and her sexual preferences. It is claimed that standard procedures in alleged rape cases were not followed, although legal sources in Dubai dispute this. A blood test proved that the woman had been drinking. The couple were arrested, charged and jailed overnight. They have been released on bail and their passports have been taken away.
    The woman has been advised to drop the rape allegation, admit that she was drunk and marry her fiancé immediately if she wants to go home. She told The Sun: “I always dreamed of a big family wedding in Britain, but now I just want to get married so I can get out of here.”

    Dubai is now almost completely controlled by Abu Dhabi so expect things like this to be on the increase.

    Soulless place that it is.

    No comment on the attack or the charges, but she sure sounds like a keeper either way.

    In the midst of celebrating her engagement, the woman went to the bathroom, where, semi-conscious, she was followed and raped by the waiter. When she remembered the incident the next morning, the couple promptly went to the police.
    Or could this be "when the fiance found evidence that she'd been shagging behind his back, she cried rape".

    I certainly wouldn't believe any of the crap in the Sun.

    Not to mention that Muslims aren't supposed to commit adultery or drink alcohol. And they were in a Muslim country.

    How f**king thick can you get?

    They'll be out in no time and I bet the Sun have already made them a tidy offer for an exclusive (full of bullshit).

    ^ You can't decipher good from bad. They are all bad since they all follow the teachings of their "prophet" - the jihadist, murderer and kiddie fiddling Mohammed. So in my book same same for all Mussies and those that don't see it are ignorant and uniformed.

    I would be interested whether travel agents and online agencys who take bookings point these laws out to clients. My niece and her boyfriend won a trip to Dubai stayed in one room, were served wine at dinner.
    They still thought it was a horrible place even if it was free!

    Interesting point for those here with Thai partners. What is marriage?
    'Village marry' --have party in home village and declare you are a couple?
    "Buddhist marry' --Not a marriage but a blessing on an undertaking?
    'State marriage'--a bit like getting your car taxed?
    'Christian chirch marry'--only the C of E marriage is actually 'legal' marriage in the UK and your family catholic priest can't actually 'marry' you !
    How about a 'Los Vegas chapel' marriage?

    So I wonder how the liberal, just and kind muslim law would deal with that one?

    I am not altogether sure that rule applies to non-natives of Dubai; I know of of Muslims from other countries who drink frequent clubs where alcohol is served and indulge in pleasures of the flesh. I must admit my information is a little 'sketchy.'
    Like you say The Scum is hardly a reliable source of information.

    Yeh, non of the holiday pushers will admit to this fact, instead it's all brochures with nice pics etc. Bottom line is that if you consume alcohol on a licenced premise then you are fine, however, the law states that as soon as you step out of that premise then you are breaking the law, intoxicated or whatever in a public place, this card usually gets pulled out the hat if there is any problem so just one to be aware of. Same shit in the airport, have a few beers in the Irish bar, step out into the actual airport area and you are in fact breaking the law. Yes makes you wonder but then again this is the country that have jailed transit passengers for having prescription drugs on them that are not allowed in the Emirates. No list published, up to you to check.

    It's not in the Q'uran but in one of the Hadiths (like a campanion book written by folks who knew the Prophet) he marries a 9 year old girl.

    To the best of my knowledge it works like this--First hand , by the way.
    The Priest marries the couple in the eyes of god. A registrar does the legal paperwork in a side annex and the couple and witnesses sign the necessary form.
    I think it is only the Uk where this happens because of historical 'differences' in faith!

    Catholic Wedding Order of Service - 5. Concluding Rite
    A final blessing is given by the priest and the Bride and Groom seal the union with a kiss. The wedding party will then move into the sacristy to make the civil declaration and sign the register, often accompanied by a hymn of thanksgiving sung throughout by the congregation. Once the formalities are complete, the priest will introduce the Bride and Groom as husband and wife and they will then proceed out of the Church, followed by the Wedding Party and remainder of the congregation accompanied by a recession hymn.

    The only shit I see is the usal attacks on posters who are not in the 'in crowd' here. Nuf said really!
    "MAKE THE CIVIL DECLARATION AND SIGN THE REGISTER"--are you keeping up?
