"Deceit" and "Forced Homosexual Relations" Among Convictions

Men Sentenced In UAE Attack

Judges from the United Arab Emirates have reached a decision in the trial of two men accused of raping a French teenager:

The two men, ages 35 and 18, had been charged with “kidnapping with deceit” and “forced homosexual relations,” a charge that can be punished with life imprisonment or death.

The judges did not state specifically what each defendant was convicted of, in line with the confidentiality clauses in Dubai’s court system.

Neither the men nor the boy were present at the sentencing.
