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.
She and her fiance 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 (had) just normal sex or anything else in bed.” Her attacker is believed to have denied raping her. He claimed the woman consented to having sex, but he has also been charged with “illegal sex”. (NOTE, NOT RAPE!!!!) The Sun quoted a diplomatic source as saying: “A desperate, distressed rape victim went with her boyfriend to report the attack to police. And both wound up behind bars. “The police and authorities in Dubai have shamed themselves by yet again displaying a breathtaking lack of compassion and humanity.”
101 LASHES FOR 16 YR OLD RAPE VICTIM, FOR CRIME OF BEING IMPREGNATED BY RAPIST (Bangladesh)
A 16 yr old girl in Bangladesh was sentenced to receive 101 lashes after it was discovered she was pregnant as the result of rape by 20-year-old Emamul Mia last April.
The 16 yr old girl was UNDERSTANDABLY reluctant to report the rape, due to the fact that rape victims are treated as if they were willing participants of the CRIME of sex. Also because of the intense shame and stigma foisted upon the victims. She was quickly married her off to a man in a neighbouring village, when the pregnancy was discovered. Her marriage ended in divorce after 30 days. So divorced after 30 days, the rape revealed, and forced to abort the child; the family of the rapist (and village elders) decided the girl and her family needed to be punished. So not only was a fatwa issued for the lashing, the father has also been fined 1,000.
THE RAPIST WAS ‘FORGIVEN’ HIS CRIME AND PARDONED.
When her pregnancy was discovered, it was found she was 7 months pregnant, and the baby was aborted. She had to live at her father’s place after an abortion. Following her return, a group of so-called matbars led by Manik Mia declared that girl be kept in isolation until the family agreed on corporal punishment.
SO eight months after being raped, AND one month after the forced abortion of her child, the 16-year-old at Khargor of Kasba upazila in Brahmanbaria had to receive 101 lashes as “punishment”. On January 17, the influential group arranged the arbitration at the yard of the victim. At one stage of the inhuman torture, the girl collapsed and fainted. She regained her sense after two hours.
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.”
