Bloody insane: Air stewardess, 28, is ‘trapped in Dubai and facing jail having being CHARGED with attempting suicide after being battered by her brutal South African husband’: Irish Emirates worker begs to be allowed home

An Irish air stewardess is trapped in Dubai and facing jail after drinking alcohol and trying to take her own life having allegedly suffered domestic abuse.

Tori Towey, 28, from Boyle in County Roscommon and who works for Emirates Airlines in the UAE, said she was attacked in her home and has now been banned from leaving the state.

A spokesperson for legal group Detained in Dubai (DiD) claimed Tori’s South African husband went after her with a knife and punched her, before slamming her arm in the bathroom door trying to break it.

Tori said she tried to take her own life after the attack, which left her with severe bruises and injuries.

But after being taken to a police station, Ms Towey is now facing charges of alcohol consumption and attempting suicide by a court in Dubai.

She said she is unable to leave the country as her passport was blocked, meaning she can’t travel back home to Ireland.

Speaking through outreach group DiD, who are assisting the family, Ms Towey said: ‘I don’t know what’s going to happen in court next week.

‘I’m desperate to go home to Ireland and put all of this in the past. I’m asking the Taoiseach to please help us.’

The DiD has said Ms Towey could face a lengthy prison sentence in a jail known for ‘human rights abuses and torture’.

Radha Stirling, CEO of Detained in Dubai, said: ‘We are calling on Dubai authorities to urgently drop the charges against Tori, remove the travel ban and let her fly home to Ireland with her mother. She has been charged with attempted suicide and alcohol consumption.

‘Strangely, the UAE has gone to great public relations efforts to promote alcohol as legal in the country. In reality, people are still regularly charged with alcohol consumption and possession. Tori’s experience is nothing short of tragic and quite frankly, she is lucky to be alive.’

She explained: ‘Tori arranged to fly home to Ireland but, when she arrived at the airport, was told a case against her by her husband had been dropped but the travel ban remained.
