A woman who ran away from Dubai Airport to escape her death in a hotel room last month is facing a court case for allegedly being in a trance and using drugs.
The Dubai Police Department on Wednesday said the woman, who had been in the country illegally, has been charged with assaulting her husband.
The man, who is a tourist, was in the room with the woman as they went to a hotel after a night of drinking, police said.
They said she was on her way to a family gathering in the city’s eastern suburb of Jumeirah.
Dubai Police Chief Khalid Al Qubaisi said the Dubai Police was investigating the matter and could not comment further because of the ongoing investigation.
