UK mum facing jail in Dubai after calling ex-husband’s new wife a ’horse’

A woman from the UK could be jailed in Dubai for having called her ex-husband’s new wife a horse on Facebook in 2016. Laleh Shahravesh and her daughter were arrested at the airport when they arrived in the UAE last month. The two were visiting Dubai to pay respects to her former husband after he had died of a heart attack. If found guilty Laleh could face two years in prison.

Such a beautiful culture... 😕 See what censorship laws do to the fabric of reality? 2years of possible incarceration for a relatively tame verbal jab from the ex wife... Thank god for our constitution.

What's frightening is that the UK is kind of slowly converting itself to this type of intolerance!

Offending someone in the UK is also a crime. So she should get off her high horse about Dubai’s ridiculous laws and start working on Britain’s ridiculous lack of free speech.

She self identifies as a donkey. She Mis-species her and (dehumanized?) her. The UAE sounds so progressive, vibrant, diversity, community, safe space *flails arms* horse face does not compute does not compute..... orrrrange man bad. *powers off*

I'm seeing some similarities between the UAE and Britain in policing speech. Scary that Britain is beginning to emulate the laws of an islamic nation.
