Dubai again

Remind me why anyone goes there expecting to be treated with civility?

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.

It has to be said, reading on, this woman is manifestly the author of her own downfall, but honestlym why do people go to Dubai?

  1. Personally I’d like to go to Dubai. I don’t drink (or have sex, as I’m married lol) so I wouldn’t fall foul of their laws. I think it’d be an interesting experience.
