Dubai closes the case against Briton who reported rape
The office of Dubai Public Prosecutor has closed the case involving the alleged rape of British national ZJM following careful examination of all evidence.
The Office has decided not to proceed with legal proceedings.
The Public Prosecutor’s Office clarified that a thorough review of statements given by the British woman and the two suspects as well as the reports of investigating officers from Dubai Police, showed that the act happened with the consent of the three parties in question.
A video obtained from the mobile phone of one of the suspects detailing the act was a key evidence that supported this conclusion.
The alleged rape was reported in late October by British national ZJM at Al Barsha police station.
The two male suspects, also British nationals, were arrested and questioned.
The three parties were later released on bail.
Their passports were retained to facilitate proper investigations.
Dubai’s legal system takes reports of all crimes very seriously, including and especially violence against women, and conducts thorough investigations of all incidents.
Following the closure of the case, all three parties involved in the case are in the process of receiving their passports and are free to leave the UAE
