-Dubai: Austrian Woman Facing Jail For Being a Rape Victim

by Dr. D ~ January 23rd, 2014

Nightscape of the high-rise section of Dubai, ...

This is another case where a western woman visiting Dubai is now facing charges and a possible jail sentence for being a victim of rape.

In any western country it is natural for a rape victim to turn to the police for help but not in a Muslim land where sharia law is in force. In Dubai a woman who has been raped may be charged with having sex out side of marriage and receive a jail sentence for her trouble. This seems crazy to Westerners or Americans but all too true in that part of the world. Here is the story from the Austrian Times:

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.

Response: Dubai has become a popular playground for the rich and famous. But the modern skyline of Dubai deceptively hides the real regressive barbaric character of the Islamic justice system in the UAR.

According to Dubai law, based upon the Quran, a woman who has been raped must produce at least 4 witnesses or be found guilty of breaking sharia law for having unlawful sex outside of marriage. Horrifically a woman victim can choose to escape charges and jail time by marrying her rapist. Which is what the very ‘helpful’ Dubai police callously suggested to the Austrian victim.

As one can imagine with laws like this it is ‘open season’ on unprotected women in Dubai. We have reported on two similar cases in the past. One involving an Australian hotel worker and another with a Norwegian tourist.

The point is, one must be very careful while visiting in a Muslim country. Regardless of how modern it may look, the laws harken back to a far more barbaric time.            *Top
