American Woman Thrown In Middle Eastern Prison Over Just 2 Words


The unnamed 25-year-old American woman was at the Abu Dhabi International Airport in the United Arab Emirates when she was approached by two men as she waited for a taxi. When the men spoke to her in a manner she did not like, she “refused to engage” with them, basically telling them “no, thanks” to whatever help they were offering. Although she states “nothing happened” regarding her encounter with the men after turning down their help, she soon found herself in jail and on trial at the Federal Supreme Court.
