British woman arrested in Dubai when she tried to report rape. This reminds me of a story I read recently about a 14 or 15 year old white boy from Sweden who was gang raped by men that he knew and trusted in Dubai. When his parents tried to report the incident, they were told that if they reported it, their son would be arrested for HOMOSEXUALITY.
THE WOMAN was raped while on holiday in Dubai but when she reported it, she was arrested instead. The 23-year-old British woman of Pakistani decent, who is said to have accepted her boyfriend’s marriage proposal during a three-day break. They were celebrating and drinking, and she ‘admitted drinking too much’. The waiter, believed to be Syrian, followed her into the bathroom and raped her while she was half conscious. So after admitting ‘illegal drinking’ outside a licensed premise, she was arrested for THAT as well as having sex outside marriage. She was sharing a hotel room with her fiance who was also charged with the same offences. So the newly engaged couple was thrown into jail, and no heed was paid to her report of rape. After being locked up, she told a cell mate she was terrified that the rapist had made her pregnant or had given her a sexually transmitted disease. She was given access to proper medical checks and a morning-after pill only after an appeal from the British embassy staff.
The arbitration also fined the victim’s father Tk 1,000 and issued another fatwa that her family would be forced into isolation if he failed to pay up.
Talking to The Daily Star, neighbours spoke in favour of the girl and blamed Enamul. They did not dare to say anything against the so-called village arbitration. The girl’s father said members of the influential group are now keeping a watch on them so that they could not move or seek legal action. Wahid Mia said they executed the 101 lashes on the girl following the religious edict and they did not call Enamul during the arbitration as he belongs to another village.
A team of human rights activists led by advocate Mili Chowdhury visited the spot. Their organisation will help the victim file separate cases against the culprits, Mili said. Kasba Police Station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Md Jahirul Islam Khan said they would take appropriate action if the victim files a case in this regard.
Three women were whipped as a result of fatwas in the district during the last six months.
SAUDI ARABIA ISSUES DEATH SENTENCE ON ‘WITCH’
Saudi’s religious police plan to behead a woman accused of being a witch. Human rights groups have asked the King to intervene over “absurd charges that have no basis in law.” Fawza Falih was arrested and interrogated in Quraiyat 2 years ago after a man complained he was made impotent when she cast a spell on him. She was beaten, tortured, forced to sign a confession she could not read (as she is illiterate) then sentenced to beheading.
Witchcraft is an offence against islam, according to Saudi Religious baby rapers.
The death sentence was lifted on appeal (after the world noticed) and then once they thought nobody would notice, the death sentence was later re-imposed in the name of “public interest.”
