‘What hap­pens if some­one falsely ac­cused me of street ha­rass­ment?’

7 Days in Dubai - - HEALTH -

“That’s the chal­lenge and that’s why it is so hard to deal with these sorts of cases. And one of the rea­sons for such a low con­vic­tion rate glob­ally. Stop­ping ha­rass­ment needs a cul­ture change, in this day and age you would think it didn’t ex­ist but sadly it is very com­mon.”


“It hap­pened to a friend of mine 20 years ago while he was shop­ping with his wife at a su­per­mar­ket. Out of nowhere, a woman with 2 po­lice of­fi­cers ap­proached him and pointed at him ac­cus­ing him of ha­rass­ing her. He was ar­rested and de­ported with no ev­i­dence.”
