British woman faces Dubai jail over Facebook ‘horse’ insult

A British woman is facing two years in jail in Dubai for calling her ex-husband’s new wife a “horse” on Facebook, campaigners have said.

Londoner Laleh Shahravesh, 55, was arrested at a Dubai airport after flying there to attend her former husband’s funeral.

She faces prosecution over two Facebook comments she posted on pictures of her husband remarrying in 2016.

The Foreign Office said it was supporting the mother-of-one.
