The Dubai Criminal Court sentenced a taxi driver to three months in jail to be followed by deportation on charges of raping a European girl while taking her home, taking advantage of her being under the influence of alcoholic beverages.
The incident took place in November last year when a girl filed a complaint in which she stated that she had been raped by a taxi driver.
According to her statement in the investigations, she used a taxi app to request a vehicle to take her home because she was under the influence of alcoholic beverages and could not drive her vehicle.
