Q.

UAE has pardoned a Norwegian woman who was sentenced to jail for illicit s*x after she reported being r*ped by a colleague while on a visit to Dubai. She was awarded 16 month sentence after a Gulf Arab Emirate found her guilty of having s*x outside marriage, drinking and making false statements. In UAE a r*pe conviction can require either a confession or the testimony of four adult male witnesses...Being a lawyer in UK i suppose it is best becoz everytime a testimony of woman is not correct......and taken on face of it....Ur views

There can be cases wherein four adult male witnesses can give false testimony. Many wrong people are also being convicted in the Gulf countries.
