A British tourist who was charged with having ‘extra-marital sex’ in Dubai after reporting that she had been gang raped no longer faces legal proceedings. The case against her was dropped.

The 25-year-old from Cheshire had been arrested and had her passport confiscated in October after she claimed she had been raped by two British men in a hotel room. The two male suspects were also arrested, questioned and had their passports confiscated, but no charges were filed against them.
