An Australian female hotel clerk in the United Arab Emirates whose drink was spiked found herself sexually assaulted by three male colleagues.
But Alicia Gali’s ordeal was about to get much worse. When she told the authorities what had happened, she was the one who disappeared behind bars. You see, Allah wills it.
What she did not know is that under the UAE’s strict sharia laws, if the perpetrator does not confess, a rape cannot be proved without the testimony of four adult Muslim male witnesses. She was charged with having illicit sex outside marriage, and thrown in a filthy jail cell for eight months.
