I read an article recently about an Australian who was raped in I beleive the UAE, and when she filed a police complaint she was jailed for 8 months for adultery. I think that a reasonable summary of the case. I also read this post from you in another theread... I agree that having witnesses for a rape charge is a good thing, certainly better than uncorroborated accusations. However, the requirement to have a witness, or in this case 4, before you are able to effectively bring a charge without fear of imprisonment is, IMO, entirely unreasonable. It seems that your view is that a man's right to protection from injustice (in this case, unjust accusation) is more important than a woman's right to justice. Is this a fair summation of your views, or would you care to qualify / expand your position? It may be that you have answered this question before and if so I'm sorry to ask you to address it again.
