A British woman who was allegedly kidnapped and gang raped by three men in Dubai has been prosecuted for drinking without a licence, throwing a spotlight on the United Arab Emirates’ archaic legal system, which rights groups say does not do enough to protect victims of sexual assault. The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, claims she was raped repeatedly by the three men who filmed the attack after they lured her into their car as she returned from a night out with friends. After reporting her ordeal to the police, the 28-year-old found herself in the dock because she admitted she had been drinking earlier that night.Editor's comment - Anyone who "vacations" in the UAE or any other Muslim nation for that matter, must truly have their head up their ass.
