Businesswoman facing jail for taxi tryst says she couldn't have been having sex because she was on her period

A British businesswoman facing three years in a Dubai jail could not have had sex in the back of a taxi because she was on her period, her lawyer told a court today. Rebecca Blake, a £100,000-a-year recruitment consultant, is accused of stripping naked in the back of a Dubai cab and writhing on top of Irishman Conor McRedmond. Her lawyer Shaker Al Shammary told Dubai Misdemeanours Court the taxi driver made a malicious false accusation after rowing with Mr McRedmond over the fare. Mr Al Shammary also claimed the driver's account was inconsistent. The pair were also charged with consuming alcohol after admitting to a 10-hour drinking binge on the day of their arrest. Mr Al Shammary told the court: 'This is Dubai, not a mosque. Everyone drinks.' Ms Blake, 29, of Dorking, Surrey, and welder Mr McRedmond, 28, from Tullamore, County Offaly, were arrested on May 4 after meeting for the first time earlier that day in a hotel bar. Pakistani taxi driver Qaiser Khan, 29, said he picked the couple up at around 11pm after their all-day drinking binge, which had started with midday brunch and unlimited drinks. During the journey Mr Khan said he looked in his rear view mirror and noticed Ms Blake had taken her top off. She was straddling Mr McRedmond and was 'moaning for two minutes and making the sounds of a woman having sex', according to police records. He pulled over on Sheikh Zayed road when he spotted a police patrol car. He then asked Emirati policeman Abdullah Obaid Khamis, 22, to, 'Come and see what they are doing.' The officer said he found the pair having sex in the car and interrupted them by tapping on the window, the court heard. Read More
