Dubai authorities now say that surveillance video in the restroom says the woman was not raped.

Uh …… Yes, women have reported rape falsely. But I don’t see why this woman would have done so in this case. It’s highly unlikely she knew the waiter and so she was trying to exact some sort of revenge on him. Did she sleep with the waiter and then, shamed by guilt, call it rape when her fiance found out?

Both of those scenarios seem unlikely. Especially when you factor in that just filing such a report put her in jeopardy because of her unmarried status and religious affiliation.

Something is going on. What it is, I’m not sure we’ll find out.
