British tourists warned not to report rape in UAE

A United Kingdom-based charity has war ned that British tou rists and expats in Dubai and across the United Arab Emirates should not report incidents of rape after a woman who was allegedly gang raped was arrested and charged with “extramarital sex“.

Detained in Dubai, an organisation that assists `victims of injustice in the UAE’, has warned against reporting rape or other crimes in the country because of the “manipulation when it comes to criminal accusations“ and the “racist“ preconceptions held against Western tourists.

The latest case involves the arrest of a 25-year-old woman who was on holiday in Dubai in October when she was allegedly attacked by two British men, who allegedly befriended her and lured her to their hotel room before pinning her down and raping her while recording it on a phone.

When the woman reported the rape to police at a police station, she was arrested for breaking Emirati laws against extramarital sex, while her attackers have since flown home to the UK.
