Filipinas Accuse Man of Rape in UAE

An Egyptian man faced a court in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) this week over allegations he raped two Filipinas at knifepoint after they had coffee at his house. The man, 29, entered a "not guilty" plea as he also belied allegations he threatened to have the two women gang-raped by his friends, reports Gulf News. The judge denied the Egyptian bail. Court records showed the Egyptian met one of the two victims, 27, over a social media network and invited her out for coffee. The woman brought her 25-year-old friend with her. However, after having coffee at his house, the Egyptian allegedly raped the two of them at knifepoint. It was only when he went to the washroom that the women ran away.
