dubai - A woman who made a selfie in Dubai for a joke threatens to go into the cell for years.
The 21-year-old Asa Hutchinson is suspected of having taken pictures of a sleeping man in the lounge bar Dusty's.
The Swede woke up and lit up in fury after which a brawl broke out in the lobby. Asa, who lives in Dubai himself, has been arrested for assault and theft of his glasses that is now missing.
Her friends who were only visiting as tourists and who also participated in the 'joke' are not punished. They have also quickly left for England.
Asa herself says she only joined the company when the fight had already broken out. Yet she is now seen as the main perpetrator by the police.
The lawyer of Hutchinson says in English media that 'justice in Dubai works differently than in countries with adult legal systems. Here it is that the first person who speaks to the police is believed. 'Because the Swede himself filed a report, he is not charged.
