An unnamed Muslim woman from Austria was told to marry the man that allegedly raped her after she reported the crime, which took place during a visit to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The woman, 29, was told that her albeit unwilling participation still constituted extra-marital sex, which is illegal in the Gulf country. She was also set to be charged with alcohol consumption, also illegal, before the Austrian Foreign Ministry intervened and ensured her safe passage home.
The attack reportedly took place after a party in a hotel in Dubai. The attacker was described as a Yemeni man who allegedly accosted his victim in a parking garage on December 1st last year.
When the woman reported the rape to local police, however, she was arrested and told she could only escape charges of extra-marital sex and alcohol consumption if she agreed to marry the man that had allegedly attacked her.
She was subsequently jailed for three days, and her passport was confiscated as police weighed whether to pursue the case.
The woman was only released after a special crisis team was sent by the Austrian Foreign Ministry to negotiate with the authorities.
An online petition calling for her immediate release obtained over 260,000 signatures in just a few days.

Why any sane person - particularly a woman - would travel to one of these Islamic countries is beyond me.
Wow, and over here we even have to pay for women’s contraceptives or we aren’t thought of as fair.
~’that’s disgusting’. What he couldn’t wait for his 72 virgins?
Stoning, decapitation or marrying a Muslim man. “uh, what were the first two choices again?
I wonder how alcohol consumption was considered illegal in Dubai? Maybe the booze wasn’t procured legally? Plenty of partying and good looking western ladies in that town.
The rats spew thier war on women here in the US but they embrace support and welcome the muslum pedophiles rapists murderers and beaters under the cover of thier so called religion.
Worth repeating over and over and ...
Why she thought to report the rape is beyond me. She’s a co-religionist. She knows what islamic law has to say about rape, what the penalties are and whom it falls to to pay up. And yet, spoiled by the West, she thought to report it!
Nuke Mecca Now!
She should marry him. He does have to sleep sometime. With planning, I think he could go away on a “secret trip”. She can dutifully await his return (the love of her life).
What do you mean “Nice Try”? You can serve up any website you want that spins it the way you want it to. The bible says what it says. That’s good enough for me. The fact is that a lot of things Christians accuse the Muzzies of are also in the bible. But some people want to pick and choose what they believe in the bible and ignore a lot of stuff.
