November 2010 - March 2011 - incident of alleged rape of student by bus driver

Media publications reported the tragic case on 16 January 2011 of a 4 year old kindergarten student at a private school in Dubai who was allegedly raped by a school bus driver, a cleaner, and an attendant while on her way home from school (on 11 November 2010).

The Khaleej Times carried some readers' comments on 18 January 2011, as did many other newspapers. What was disturbing was that some of the comments appeared to indicate there were more incidents of a similar nature which had gone unreported. The KT said:

In response to the KT coverage of the molestation of a four year old child in a school bus we are receiving hundreds of comments, some detailing reports of other similar incidents. We cannot carry any of these reports unless they are first reported to the police. The police are your friends and they are there to help you like they helped this family. This hesitation to go to the police only makes a situation worse. Please take the courage of your conviction and if you are a silent victim seek their help because if you do nothing that molester is out there and is a danger to some other child. That is not something you would like on your conscience.

Whilst some UAE residents and visitors might be reluctant to report a rape or any other form of sexual assault to the police for fear of being arrested for having had sex (as has happened on several occasions), if the incident involves a young child, such fears should be groundless. Although there was a worrying case in Abu Dhabi in 2010 of a 14 year old girl being charged with consensual sex and a 28 year old bus driver being charged with rape, after an encounter between the two parties. And another case in Ajman where a 14 year old schoolgirl was arrested and jailed (while awaiting trial) in March 2011 on a charge of adultery.
