The beginning is from the Sunday Times newspaper and an exclusive report by Christina Lamb and Debeesh Ghadher entitled “UAE Minister of Tolerance in a“ Sexual Assault Case ”against an employee of the Hay Book Festival .

The report says that Scotland Yard has interviewed a British woman named Caitlin McNamara, 32, who claims she was the victim of a serious sexual assault by a senior member of the Emirati ruling family, Sheikh Nahyan Mubarak Al Nahyan, 69, Minister of Tolerance in the UAE government. While working on launching Hay Literary Festival in Abu Dhabi. McNamara chose to remain anonymous to tell her story.

The report adds that the attack took place on Valentine’s Day, February 14 this year, in a villa on a remote private island, believed to be located in the Crimean resort, where most of the ruling family members own real estate. McNamara thought that the sheikh called her and invited her to dinner in His residence was to discuss preparations for the opening of Hay Festival Abu Dhabi. The sheikh denied any wrongdoing and said at the end of this week that he was “surprised and saddened” by the allegations.

While the High Festival supports freedom of expression, human rights organizations have repeatedly criticized the Gulf state’s dealings with dissidents .
