A 20-year-old student from another Gulf Arab country could be executed for raping a 16-year-old boy of the same nationality at knife point after drugging him at his apartment in Dubai, a newspaper reported on Sunday.
The emirate’s prosecutor said he had demanded death punishment against the student for raping the boy and filming his crime in October to scare him not to report him to the police, according to the semi-official daily Alittihad.
Yousuf Fouladh said he had demanded execution of the student after police records showed he had committed similar crimes before.
He told the paper the unnamed student and two friends met the boy at Nad Al Shiba play field and asked him to come with them in the car for a ride.
He said the boy agreed as one of them is his friend, adding that they took him to the defendant’s flat in Rashidiya.
After one of them left, the defendant asked the boy’s friend to go to the shop and buy drinks. Once the two were alone in the apartment, the student pulled a knife, twisted the boy’s hand and gave him a tablet that made him feel giddy.
“He then committed his crime against the boy and filmed the crime by a hidden camera so the boy will not report him to the police,” Fouladh said.
“But the boy told his mother, who told his father…the father then reported the student to the police……tests confirmed the rape as they showed the defendant’s DNA on the boy’s body…we are demanding the defendant’s execution in accordance with the federal penal law 354.”.
