Austrian Woman Faces Charges of Sex Outside of Marriage Despite Claims of Rape in Dubai

| by Dominic Kelly

An Austrian postgraduate student on holiday in Dubai faces charges after going to police to report that the son of a police officer raped her. The 24-year-old is facing charges of sex before marriage and alcohol consumption, both of which are illegal in the Muslim country.

Sources close to the case all told Gulf News details about the incident and claimed that an investigation is currently being conducted to determine if the rape allegations are true or if the sex was indeed consensual.

“The woman came with friends on holiday for Christmas and the 42nd National Day celebrations,” describes one source. “She went with her friends to a pub in a hotel to attend a National Day party and that was where she met the man, who introduced himself as an Emirati. The man was also with a group of joint friends. The partygoers decided to go to an after-party gathering. The man offered to drive the student. He locked the doors as soon as they jumped into his car in the basement parking. When he unlocked the doors the Austrian claims that she ran away and saw a group of people. She claimed to them that she had been raped and those people told the police.”

According to reports, police tried to convince her to marry the man in order to get herself out of being charged with sex outside of marriage, but the woman refused and insisted that she was raped.

“The Austrian woman, who is in her mid 20s, is currently facing primary charges of having consensual sex with the Yemeni man and consuming liquor,” said the source. “Further investigations will prove whether she was raped as she claims or had consensual sex. Police records show that the couple had consensual sex. Prosecutors have requested the footage of the parking area’s surveillance cameras to confirm her claims whether she was crying and in a distraught state when she got out of the car or not.”

Police say that the woman initially claimed that the sex was consensual and only later changed her claim to rape, but the woman insists that the man and his police officer father pressured her to make false claims in the first place. Both sex outside of marriage and alcohol consumption are illegal in the United Arab Emirates, which means the young woman could face serious charges if found guilty of either.
