    Bikini Briton arrested in Dubai

    A British woman has been arrested and charged with indecency after walking through a Dubai shopping mall wearing a bikini.


    irmed the woman was arrested and charged, but the charges have since been dropped. The holidaymaker is believed to have been arrested after a complaint that she was dressed indecently in Dubai Mall, the world's largest shopping centre.
    It is believed the woman walked through the mall wearing a revealing top, attracting the complaint from a local woman. She then apparently stripped down to a bikini, prompting her arrest, the Daily Mail reported.
    A spokeswoman for the Foreign Office confirmed the woman had been arrested and charged with indecency at the mall.
    She said: "We are aware of the case. We have offered consular assistance." But she said the charges have since been dropped.
    This is not the first time a Briton has fallen foul of Dubai's strict laws.
    Businessman Vince Acors and publishing executive Michelle Palmer received three-month jail terms after being convicted of having sex on a beach in July 2008 while Charlotte Adams, 26, and Ayman Najafi, 24, were jailed for a month earlier this year for kissing in a restaurant.
    Advice on the Foreign Office website reminds tourists visiting the United Arab Emirates that local laws reflect the fact it is an Islamic country.
    It says: "You should respect local traditions, customs, laws and religions at all times, and be aware of your actions to ensure that they do not offend other cultures or religious beliefs.Women should dress modestly when in public areas, such as shopping malls. Clothes should cover the tops of the arms and legs, and underwear should not be visible.
    "Public displays of affection are frowned upon and there have been several arrests for kissing in public."

    nilikua Dubai hivi karibuni pale Dubai grand Hotel under ground room kuna bonge la kasino na makahaba wa kutosha wengi wakiwa kutoka philippine , ethiopia na waarabu kiasi so nilichokigundua ni kwamba vitendo vingi vichafu vinafanyika kwa siri katika Nchi nyingi za uarabuni.
