An official at Sharjah Police stated: “The suspect was caught wearing women’s clothes. The park was exclusively for women on that day. He was walking around the park in the abaya enjoying his time there.”
He will be charged with cross dressing, an illegal act in Sharjah. Additionally, there is a law in the area against unmarried men and woman being in “public places alone or in suspicious times and circumstances.”
The area of Sharjah is only 10 miles from Dubai but is much more conservative. It enforces a strict dress code and woman only beaches, parks and clubs are common.
