Exactly this, if you go to shitholes where you know it's dangerous and have something horrible done to you, you only got yourself to blame. It's amazing to me how many people travel to insanely dangerous places and not know a damn thing about them.

I'm not saying the victim could have done anything about getting raped, but apparently she had no idea reporting this to the police would land her jail time.

If you report a rape to the police in the UAE it is highly probable you end up in jail. If you admit to the police you were drinking it is highly probable you end up in jail. Good to know if you are going there.

She was sent there by her employer. I'm guessing UAE isn't exactly a vacation hot spot for women.

She still choose to go.........if my work decided to send me somewhere where I know there's a decent risk involved I probably would not do it.

Ya I'm surprised "if you get raped, don't call the cops" isn't listed in the UAE travel brochure.

I do, it's a terrible thing but you also go to know the type of environment you are heading to, that's the problem with people in general they are not aware of dangers in there environments and end up paying for it.

So you think getting raped is a predictable risk?

Well in the Netherlands the government operates this big ass travel advice website purely for the purpose of informing people of these things.

It's a shame they stick to generalities like "Women should not travel alone in the UAE because of cultural differences.", shrouding the issues in politically correct vagueness.

Breaking news is that the lady in question has just been pardoned by the Emir of Dubai.

Those Arabs are just rich desert Sheikhs who still live in the 9th century but wanna play 21st century humans, obviously they fail hard at it.

Or maybe they lock the gay guys up with the women who got raped.

There was an episode of Locked Up Abroad where a Brit went to Saudi Arabia for a job and was later arrested for homosexuality. He was beaten and threatened with being beheaded. I guess if you don't mind being stuck in prison, being beaten, and facing the possibility of being beheaded, then it's not so bad. Also, those Islamic countries tend to hand out sentences that include a shit ton of lashes as part of the punishment. Expats tend to get deported, unless you're unlucky like that Brit who wasn't immediately because they say his case had ties to some political stuff.

The country is owned and exploited and drained of its resources by a bunch of corrupt, evil and hypocritical wankers.

Get a ****ing clue about what you're blabbing about.
