UK woman arrested in Dubai after reporting rape
A British tourist has been arrested in Dubai on charges of extramarital sex after telling Police a group of British nationals raped her in the United Arab Emirates, according to a UK-based legal advice group called Detained in Dubai.
“This is tremendously disturbing,” Radha Stirling, the group’s founder and director, said in a statement. “Police regularly fail to differentiate between consensual intercourse and violent rape.
It is understood that the Foreign Office is also in contact with two other British nationals.
