Muslim UAE to Try 14-year-old for Adultery

UAE to try 14-year-old on adultery charges Herald Sun (hat tip her royal whyness)
A 14-YEAR-OLD Arab schoolgirl who has been detained in the United Arab Emirates on a charge of adultery will appear in court later this month.

"The trial will start in spite of the age ceiling set for trials on sexual related crimes by the UAE law," said the daily newspaper Gulf News today.

"The law states that the minimum age of suspects in crimes related to sex must be 15 years. Such cases should be conducted in special juvenile courts.

Otherwise, suspects are considered victims rather than suspects," the daily quoted a "law expert" as saying.

On April 5, Gulf News said police in the emirate of Ajman had arrested the teenager after she met up with her boyfriend on the roof of her family home.

She has since been forced to undergo a gynaecological examination which "confirmed she was still a virgin", the unnamed girl's father was quoted as saying by the English-language daily.

In police custody since March 22, the girl was being held with adult women and bail has been refused for her release.

The young girl was also locked up for three days in solitary confinement in a section reserved for Emiratis....

This is absurd. She (the minor) is being a victim of a miscarriage of justice, and receiving a wrongful conviction. A miscarriage of justice is the conviction and punishment of a person, for a crime that they did not commit. In this case, adultery. The authorities want to charge her with adultery, however, her doctoral exam provided proof that no sexual-relations had happened (i.e. the suspect is still a virgin). Also, under Indian law, adultery is defined as sex between a man and a woman without the consent of the woman’s husband; to PROVE adultery under “Muslim” Law, “requires the accuser to produce four eye witnesses to the act of sexual intercourse, each…whom should have a good reputation for being truthful and honest.”
If four witnesses are “produced”, and they claim to have seen the girl and her boyfriend in the act, then they would be lying under oath, as, any circumstantial evidence was dismissed with the confirming of her still being a virgin.

What this case has, is a confirmation bias. What this means, is bias towards a people of a certain race, gender, background, etc. Being that this is taking place in an area of Muslim/Islamic/Arabic descent, there is a bias and discrimination towards the feminine gender.
Confirmation bias, is when a persons have a tendency to use information in which is made up of their own OPINIONS rather than the actual facts/evidence.

What I’d like is for there to be a request put in to overturn her conviction. Her countries law, is going to make her another sharia stat all because of their own lousy, atrocious conformation bias. This girl is innocent, and the entire world needs to see that!
