A British woman who was arrested in Dubai after she claimed to have been raped has returned home.
The Muslim woman and her then fiancée were arrested for sex out of wedlock and illegal drinking, after they reported an alleged rape in the bathroom of an upmarket Dubai hotel.
Prosecutors dropped the charge of sex out of wedlock, but pursued the drinking charge. The rape claim was dropped due to apparent lack of evidence.
According to The Sun newspaper, the woman has since split from her fiancé and is currently awaiting HIV test results in the UK. The woman told the newspaper that her life is “in ruins”.
