Within Sharia law, there are a group of "Haram" offenses which carry severe punishments. These include pre-marital sexual intercourse, sex by divorced persons, post-marital sex, adultery, false accusation of unlawful intercourse, drinking alcohol, theft, and highway robbery. Haram sexual offenses can carry a sentence of stoning to death or severe flogging.

Dubai is a criminal slave state.
Sahinal Monir, a slim 24-year-old from the deltas of Bangladesh. "To get you here, they tell you Dubai is heaven. Then you get here and realise it is hell," he says. Four years ago, an employment agent arrived in Sahinal's village in Southern Bangladesh. He told the men of the village that there was a place where they could earn 40,000 takka a month (£400) just for working nine-to-five on construction projects. It was a place where they would be given great accommodation, great food, and treated well. All they had to do was pay an up-front fee of 220,000 takka (£2,300) for the work visa – a fee they'd pay off in the first six months, easy. So Sahinal sold his family land, and took out a loan from the local lender, to head to this paradise.
As soon as he arrived at Dubai airport, his passport was taken from him by his construction company. He has not seen it since. He was told brusquely that from now on he would be working 14-hour days in the desert heat – where western tourists are advised not to stay outside for even five minutes in summer, when it hits 55 degrees – for 500 dirhams a month (£90), less than a quarter of the wage he was promised. If you don't like it, the company told him, go home. "But how can I go home? You have my passport, and I have no money for the ticket," he said. "Well, then you'd better get to work," they replied.
Pretty evil place if you ask me.

Shame on you people for making fun of this post.
This is not funny.
Her country should be saving her.
And how dare these people do this - let them have no entry into any decent country.
sharia - the code of law derived from the Koran and from the teachings and example of Mohammed; "sharia is only applicable to Muslims"; "under Islamic law there is no separation of church and state"
... calling the Sharia 'law' can be misleading, as Sharia extends beyond law. Sharia is the totality of religious, political, social, domestic and private life. Sharia is primarily meant for all Muslims, but applies to a certain extent also for people living inside a Muslim society. Muslims are not totally bound by the Sharia when they live or travel outside the Muslim world.

... nationals of Dubai are entitled to state help. The extensive list of assistance includes health care benefits, maternity benefits, childcare benefits, pension benefits, unemployment benefits, disability benefits and more.
Dubai Police will boycott local and non-local companies that use the current economic crisis as a pretext to carry out mass layoffs of UAE nationals at short notice without giving them enough time to look for new jobs.

If we can't go to their countries, and expect our morals to be respected, then we shouldn't allow them to travel to our countries.
Since when does a woman sexually active with her fiancee become alright to rape?
This is an outrage.

Let me get this straight.
You are saying is it morally acceptable to rape a woman because she has been drinking and has sex with her fiancee?
As long as it is ok in the country where you happen to be, rape is morally acceptable according to you?
Is this what you are saying, cause it sure sound like what you saying.
She had it coming, is that what you think?
There is nothing school yard bullyish about not wanting men around who think it is ok to forcible rape a woman under certain circumstances.

And how much of this do we even know to be credible and true. I am not saying it isn't true what happened, but it does seem suspicious. In a country like Dubai at such a prestigious hotel I find it a bit hard to believe that one of the staff members would rape a guest of the hotel.

"All the necessary procedures were undertaken. Our rules are clear in the UAE; illegal drinking and sexual intercourse is considered an offence, so a case was filed against the couple as well. But we didn't ignore the rape report," he said without confirming or denying the forensic report on whether the woman was raped or not as the matter was with the public prosecution.
