Model who jumped naked from sixth-floor Dubai hotel room to flee ‘rapist’ has been moved to PRISON after surgery on her injuries as harrowing new details of her attack emerge:

  • Ekaterina Stetsyuk told friends a man tried to rape and kill her in a Dubai hotel
  • She needed surgery after suffering serious back injuries following her jump
  • The 22-year-old model’s alleged attacker is 39-year-old Pakistani businessman
  • But he is said to have claimed that he was defending himself after she attacked

A Russian model has been thrown in a Dubai detention prison despite giving harrowing new details of her claim that she was fought off ‘a knife-wielding rapist’ – saying she jumped ‘naked’ six floors to save her life.

Supporters of Ekaterina Stetsyuk, 22, who suffered serious back injuries requiring surgery, say she has been locked up because the man made a counter claim that she attacked him.

After two operations on her back, the woman has been moved to a detention centre, say her family.

British man jailed in Dubai for WhatsApp message about dodgy car

British man jailed in Dubai for WhatsApp message about dodgy car:

A British real estate agent has been jailed for sending a WhatsApp message to a dodgy car salesman after he was swindled out of £6000. He asked the car dealer “how do you sleep at night?”

Kingston man Yaseen Killick, 29, spent £6000 on a second-hand Volkswagen Golf – only for the vehicle to break down hours later. Killick then discovered the car had previously been written off, so he sent the dodgy dealer an angry message on WhatsApp.

“How do you sleep at night knowing you’re ripping people off?” Killick wrote in the message. Killick also threatened to take the car salesman to court over the dodgy deal and said that selling the car to him was “morally wrong.”

But that certainly wasn’t the end of it. The car dealer complained to police over the threatening message, which resulted in Killick’s arrest at Dubai airport where he and his wife were trying to board a flight back to the UK to spend Christmas with relatives.

‘Don’t report rape in Dubai,’ tourists warned after ‘gang raped’ British tourist arrested and charged with ‘extramarital sex’

‘Don’t report rape in Dubai,’ tourists warned after ‘gang raped’ Brit arrested:

A UK charity is warning British tourists and expats in Dubai not to report rape to police after a woman was arrested and charged with “extramarital sex” after telling authorities she had been gang raped.

Detained in Dubai, an organization that assists people who have become victims of injustice in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), says rape should not be reported in the country because of “racist” preconceptions held against Western tourists and “manipulation when it comes to criminal accusations.”

“We get people contacting us asking whether they should report a crime and – whether it be a rape or anything else – I often say no. Absolutely not,” Radha Stirling, the founder of the charity, told the Independent.

The price of solar power just fell 50% in 16 months – Dubai at $.0299/kWh!:

Dubai received bid of $.0299/kWh for 800MW of solar power. This price represents the lowest yet recorded for solar power (and might not represent the end of the price drops…).

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has received 5 bids from international organisations for the third phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, said HE Saeed Mohammed AlTayer, MD & CEO of DEWA. The lowest recorded bid at the opening of the envelopes was US 2.99 cents per kilowatt hour. The next step in the bidding process will review the technical and commercial aspects of the bids to select the best one.

In the USA, in 2014 and with incentives, utility scale solar projects averaged $.05/kWh. On this bid alone, five companies bid below $.045/kW – without subsidies!

On The Trail Of Dubai’s Stolen Gold: A Robbed Client Breaks The Silence, And A Fascinating Detail Emerges

On The Trail Of Dubai’s Stolen Gold: A Robbed Client Breaks The Silence, And A Fascinating Detail Emerges:

On Christmas Day, 2015, we told our readers the fascinating tale about the Turkish-Iranian gold smuggling ring – perhaps the biggest and most brazen in history, one which lasted for years, which saw billions in gold transported out of Turkey and into Iran to allow Tehran to circumvent the western financial sanctions using gold as a medium for bater, and which was all made possible thanks to the tiny Emirate of Dubai.

What made this particular instance of gold smuggling especially memorable is that it reached to the very political top in both Turkey, and Iran, and Dubai.

The Mystery Of Dubai’s Vaporized Gold: The Plot Thickens:

Earlier this week, we told a fascinating story about an unprecedented, multi-year smuggling ring involving Turkey, Iran, and Dubai (as well as China, Russia and countless other nations) which saw corruption reaching to the very top of the political and financial establishment: from president Erdogan in Turkey, to one of Turkey’s richest people, Iran-born Riza Sarraf, to Sheikh Sultan Bin Khalifa Al Nahyan, the son of the ruler of Abu Dhabi and one of the world’s richest people. The smuggled object in question was gold, billions of dollars worth of gold.
