Jail term slashed for student who lured rape victim with burgers
A student has had his jail term slashed for luring a teenager to his Dubai villa to eat burgers and then raping him.
Dubai Court of First Instance had sentenced the 19-year-old Emirati student to a year for the attack on the 16-year-old German boy, however the appeal court yesterday overturned this and reduced it to three months.
The German youngster testified that the suspect invited him to have MacDonald’s at his home and watch a movie.
The German said the defendant and his cousin approached him as he was walking to Uptown Mirdif and they went to buy burgers.
As the trio walked to the defendant’s home, his cousin left the two of them alone.
The young boy said that when he got to the villa, the Emirati, who had been drinking alcohol, forced him into the bathroom.
“He locked the door from the inside and threatened to beat me.
He then raped me,” the German victim said in official records. The defendant was also fined Dhs2,000 by the appeal court.
