Rape Victim in Dubai, U.A.E charged with having sex outside of marriage

Sharia shithole U.A.E is back in the news again charging a rape victim with sex outside of marriage

Dubai to charge Austrian woman victim for illegal sex

An Austrian tourist who claimed she was raped by a policeman’s son in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates has been told that she is facing jail herself – for having sex outside of marriage.

The 24-year-old woman reported the rape to local police expecting that they would take action against the accused, and instead found herself facing charges.

And even more amazing she claims that she was told by one of the policeman that she complained to that she could escape charges if she were prepared to marry the man that she alleged had raped her in a car during an attack on December 2nd, which is a public holiday in Dubai.

She had been in the region with friends on holiday and accepted an offer by the man to drive her home. But once they had walked into an underground car park underneath a five-star hotel in Yemen he had raped her, she claims.

The man then tried to drive the woman away from the hotel but she managed to jump out of the car screaming for help – where other guests helped her and the police were called.

As well as facing charges of sex outside marriage it is also alleged that she had been drinking. Both actions are illegal in United Arab Emirate State.

According to Austrian media the man initially claimed that the woman had offered him sex because she was drunk, and then later claimed that she was a prostitute who had demanded money for sex – something she also denies.

The Austrian Embassy refused to comment but did confirm reports about rape allegations on a Austrian tourist.

The investigations are continuing and the woman is not at this time being held in custody.

CCTV footage from the garage has reportedly been handed to the police for analysis.

Just last year a young Norwegian interior designer Marte Deborah Dalelv was sentenced to 16 months in prison after suffering a similar fate and being raped and convicted of sex outside marriage.

Interestingly both the latest case involving the Austrian woman and the earlier case involving the Norwegian woman had both involved in making complaints at the same police station in the in Bur area of Dubai.

The 24-year-old Norwegian was convicted and sentenced on charges of having unlawful sex, making a false statement and illegal consumption of alcohol.

But after international protests she was pardoned and released. The man was also freed.

In the United Arab Emirates, as in some other countries using Islamic law, a rape conviction can require either a confession, or the testimony of four adult male witnesses.

The First Person in My Family NOT to Go to College

It’s a question I’ve been asked a thousand times: “What school do you go to?”

Sometimes it’s piggybacking on some earlier question about my age or my job, but it almost always comes up. Some people have asked me more than once, their preconceptions of normalcy overwhelming their memory. But like most preconceptions, the question not asked is as telling as the one that is. In asking me what school I go to, they fail to ask themselves why they necessarily expect me to go to any school at all. I’m in my twenties and middle class, so surely I must be attending college.

Even more telling is their reaction when I answer. “I’m actually not going to college,” I’ll say, and their reaction is like that of someone who’s inquired about a relative only to learn that they’ve died. They think they’ve embarrassed me by forcing me to reveal a shortcoming. This reveals a second level of assumption: If I can’t go, it must be because I can’t afford it, or couldn’t get into a “decent” school.

Of course, it’s true that lots of students can’t afford college. Many of them go anyway, seduced by the promise of steady employment and higher income for the rest of their lives. Long ago, the question morphed from, “Can I afford to go to college?” into, “How can I afford not to?”

Usually, the follow-up question is, “So…what are you doing?” I tell them I’m working for the family business; we have a media company, we produce some TV and radio shows, and we do some economic work. I help produce a radio show, which means I schedule the guests. I hesitate to tell them I’m writing about why college is a bad investment; I wouldn’t want to embarrass them.

Six Muslim siblings jailed for brutal attempt to kidnap and assault woman who was in relationship with their sister

Five Muslim sisters and a brother have been jailed for up to six years for assaulting and attempting to kidnap a woman who was in a relationship with their sister.

Sarah Harrison, 35, was targeted as she left her place of work in Blackburn, Lancashire, as the family sought to discover where she and her partner Nazma Ditta, 28, were living.

CCTV captured the fierce struggle that Miss Harrison put up as she fended off attempts to bundle her into a car in broad daylight on June 20 last year.

Preston Crown Court heard how Miss Harrison feared that acid would be thrown in her face as shouts of “get her in, get her, you’ve messed with the wrong Muslims” were heard.

She was confronted by sisters Atfah Ditta, 32, and Ghazala Ditta, 31, who got out of a parked silver Toyota Corolla car.
