    Because it is ****ing awesome. Also I am pretty sure this isn't a regular occurence. I've been there many times and the police haven't beaten the crap out of me. America on the other hand is notorious for police brutality, but that's a country run by white people so I am guessing you wouldn't want to deter people from going there right? It pisses me off that you call yourself human rights when you are clearly a racist.

    NB: This is going by other posts and not this one alone.

    AUSTRALIAN WOMAN GANG RAPED IN DUBAI JAILED FOR ADULTERY

    http://www.eutimes.net/2011/03/austr...ing-to-police/

    A Queensland woman spent eight months in a United Arab Emirates jail for adultery after complaining to police about being drugged and raped by co-workers.

    Alicia Gali, 29, yesterday detailed her harrowing ordeal after filing a Queensland lawsuit against the five-star international resort where the attack allegedly took place in 2008.

    Warning other women against going to the UAE, Ms Gali said she endured eight months in a crowded prison room with up to 30 other women after she complained to authorities of being raped.

    “These countries don’t have the same laws as us. You can end up in serious trouble,” she said.

    Apart from her family, no one in Australia knew Ms Gali had been jailed for adultery and illegal drinking, because Australian embassy staff advised her and her family not to go to the media.

    “It was just traumatising,” she said.

    “Everything that happened was the worst thing that somebody could go through.”

    “You’re just totally alone in a foreign country, with no assistance from your employer or the embassy.”

    Ms Gali, a salon manager at the resort, said she had been in the staff bar, where she was told she could legally drink, when another employee put ice in her drink.

    She said it was the last thing she remembered before waking the next day in her room with painful injuries.

    “I didn’t know what had happened. I was traumatised, I felt ill. I didn’t even remember getting there or what had happened,” Ms Gali said.

    She said it was only when she took herself to hospital did she realise she had been sexually assaulted.

    Later she learned she had been heard screaming and security guards had found men hiding in her room, where she was naked and unconscious.

    When she was discharged from hospital she was asked to go to a police station to make a statement and then speak in front of a judge.

    “I realised when I was put in a police car that I was being taken to jail.”

    Ms Gali said she was never warned by her UAE employers that she could be charged with adultery and face prison if she complained of being raped, without having four adult male Muslim witnesses.

    “I didn’t even know what the charges were until five months into my sentence,” Ms Gali said.

    Three of the men Ms Gali claimed sexually abused her were jailed, but for adultery and not rape.

    After serving eight months of a 12-month sentence, Ms Gali was pardoned and released and flew home in March 2009.

    Since then she has been treated for post traumatic stress disorder, suffered claustrophobia and flashbacks.

    “I felt depressed, angry and confused,” she said.

    “I was the victim. I’d had something wrong done to me and I was being punished.”

    Law firm Maurice Blackburn on Thursday filed a damages claim in the Supreme Court in Brisbane, alleging Ms Gali’s employer failed to warn her of the risk of being drugged, raped, charged with adultery and jailed if she complained.

    Solicitor Melissa Payne said it was a complex legal case and they would consult experts in UAE law.

    It's not as bad as British tabloids make it out to be. This story is certainly horrific, but it is not the norm over there. I would know, my parents are from there and I stay 6 weeks over there every summer.

    I'm sure we can all take exceptional extreme cases from all countries, Britain, America etc. where it can seem like it's just as bad.

    The law over there is very strict, officially that is. By which I mean, on the face of it they present these strict laws but in reality 99% of the time the police look past it. Only if it's a public ordeal or something really serious that they start to implement their laws because they have to set an example and have no choice but to act if the crime is a big public spectacle.

    I do hope that the British embassy in Dubai pushes for justice to be served to the police men and others involved in this appalling act.

    Now that this has gotten world-wide media attention the Dubai authorities will be forced to take action. It's one of the few times I am glad their punishments are so harsh. Those animals deserve it.

    "The Consul General has spoken directly to the Dubai police at the highest level on a number of times to stress the importance of a full investigation.

    "The police have assured us that they are investigating and we are remaining in close touch with them."

    The closet racist is always the one that brings it up.. :rolleyes:

    If I descibed a black person as black I bet you that he wouldn't be the one that was offended. You sir, are a racist.

    Also, because police in America are brutal this makes it ok for police in Dubai to be brutal? Because only the worst country in the world should be blamed shouldn't it...

    Idiot.
    What the **** are you on about?!
