A British woman who was allegedly kidnapped and gang-raped by three men in Dubai found herself in the dock for drinking without an alcohol licence.
The 28-year-old expatriate, who cannot be named for legal reasons, admitted to police she was drunk when the alleged attack took place and was prosecuted and fined £169.
Under Islamic law in the United Arab Emirates, drinking without an alcohol licence is a crime.
Two of the Iranians accused of raping her are facing trial while a third defendant cannot be traced.
The woman, who works in a managerial position, said her ordeal lasted hours with the alleged rapists filming the attack and taunting her, despite her pleas to be let go.
