Rape Victim Jailed For Adultery

United Arab Emirates: A Queensland woman spent eight months in a United Arab Emirates jail for adultery after complaining to police about being drugged and raped by co-workers.

Alicia Gali, 29, yesterday detailed her harrowing ordeal after filing a Queensland lawsuit against the five-star international resort where the attack allegedly took place in 2008.

Warning other women against going to the UAE, Ms Gali said she endured eight months in a crowded prison room with up to 30 other women after she complained to authorities of being raped.

After serving eight months of a 12-month sentence, Ms Gali was pardoned and released and flew home in March 2009. Since then she has been treated for post traumatic stress disorder, suffered claustrophobia and flashbacks.


  1. What's the matter with you people, don't you know the law? She admitted she was with a man other than her husband so that's obviously adultery, right?

    In addition, she should have observed Saudi public law 247-B part 1 which states, "All ladies shall wear ye burlap sack over the head at all times, unless wishing to be raped, in which case she shall not wear the burlap sack. "

  2. That last comment I wrote was meant to be satirical, but the actual facts are worse than any satire. Here is a section from the actual news article,

    "Ms Gali said she was never warned by her UAE employers that she could be charged with adultery and face prison if she complained of being raped, without having four adult male Muslim witnesses."

    So, folks, if you are going to be raped, make sure that you have at least four, not two, not three, but four witnesses. Oh yes, male witnesses. And they must be muslim. Not Hindu, not Christian.
