Dubai Jails Raped Woman For ‘Illegal Sex’

Sure, this is from the trashy UK tabloid, The Sun, but we find it all too plausible:

Dubai waiter rapes British girl – then SHE and fiance are held for illegal sex

A BRITISH woman on a break in Dubai went to police after being raped – but SHE was arrested for having illegal sex.

The 23-year-old Londoner was attacked by a waiter in a hotel toilet after celebrating her engagement to her boyfriend with drinks.

But after she admitted boozing and sharing a hotel room with her fiancé, cops in the strict Islamic state arrested her for "illegal drinking" outside licensed premises and having sex outside marriage.

Her 44-year-old fiancé, also from London, was charged with the same offences. And both were thrown in police cells by officers who paid little heed to the rape

The ordeal of the rape victim, a pretty Muslim of Pakistani descent, began after she joyfully accepted a marriage proposal from her boyfriend during a three-day New Year break.

She admitted drinking too much afterwards as they celebrated at Dubai Marina’s luxurious Address Hotel – and passed out in a ladies’ loo.

The waiter is said to have followed her into the toilets and raped her while she was semi-conscious.

Her fiancé was initially unaware of the attack and helped her to their room, where they slept until the next day.
Quizzed

But the horror of the rape came back to her when she woke – and the pair went to Jebel Ali police station to report it.

Yet unsympathetic cops immediately quizzed them about breaking the emirate’s severe decency rules, which contain elements of Sharia law.

Medics were said to have shunned rape case procedures – but made sure they obtained a blood sample from the woman to prove she had been drinking.

After being locked up, she told a cellmate she was terrified the rapist had made her pregnant or given her a sexually transmitted disease.

She was given access to proper medical checks and a morning-after pill only after an appeal from British embassy staff.

She and her fiancé spent several days behind bars before being freed.

The cellmate, held for alleged cheque fraud, said: "She’s a British girl but a Muslim, so I think they were tougher on her because of that.

"She was trying to report the rape but soon realised the policemen were more interested in how often she has sex with her boyfriend.

"They even asked if she did just normal sex or anything else in bed."

Her attacker, who is understood to be Syrian, is believed to have denied rape.

He claimed the Briton consented but has also been charged with "illegal sex"…

Those devout Musselmen have their priorities.

What a goof ball (read that criminal) country, where the law is worse than some of the criminals.

Sex with a fiance? Crime! Rape?…well…. not so much!

As I said in a previous post about a similar situation.
She was stupid…The rapist was a criminal!

Not so there. She is guilty for having sex with a boy friend. The rapist is only guilty of the same crime. Just illicit sex. Rape is a ‘tad’ more than that I believe.

Why would any sane woman want to go to that country (or any muslim country) is beyond me. There are too many other vacation spots to go to in this world.

Women in the Islamic religion do not have equal rights as we all know. They can NOT pray in the same mosque and are treated as second class people worldwide. Sharia Law needs to be banned from use worldwide and until these concerns are changed the religion will continue to be second class also.

Why would anyone go to Dubai for any reason?

What makes this whole issue even more perplexing is to see photos of the beaches of Dubai. At least the glossy promo photos. They seem to sport women in bikinis.

How’s that for double speak? Google it, I did.

That’s exactly what I would like to know. Who in their right mind would go to ANY Muslim country? She may be a “Londoner”, but she’s also a Muslim of Pakistani descent so maybe she thought she’d be “safe”. So, how’d that work out for you, babe?

Liberalism is a mental disorder.

A mental disorder is what makes anyone think a woman can engage in any kind of sex in a Mohamadan country and not get punished, unless she does what her husband wants.

Like the three people arrested on the Iraq-Iran border: Stooopidd!

To be clear, I don’t hate anyone but the bad guys, and more correctly, what the bad guys do.

For the record.
