Man jailed for rap­ing show jump­ing champ


A man who beat up a show jump­ing cham­pion and raped her has been jailed for life.

In June the Emi­rati man, 24, lured the Egyp­tian eques­trian cham­pion to his villa where he beat her up, raped her and filmed the act.

Yes­ter­day, the Dubai Court of First In­stance con­victed the Emi­rati of beat­ing the vic­tim, rap­ing her and breach­ing her pri­vacy. The pre­sid­ing judge also re­ferred the vic­tim’s civil law­suit to the Dubai Civil Court. The woman had lodged a civil law­suit, seek­ing Dh21,000 in tem­po­rary com­pen­sa­tion for moral and emo­tional dam­ages. (Staff Re­port)
