40 transvestites face deportation

Dubai- Forty cross-dressing tourists have been arrested in shopping malls and other public places in Dubai and they will be deported soon.

The visitors were held after police launched a campaign against transvestites in May. The 40 offenders were referred to the Public Prosecution, which issued an administrative deportation order against them, UAE daily Gulf News reported.

All of those arrested were visitors and tourists and not residents, police stressed. Any man or woman who dresses up and behaves like the opposite gender in public will be questioned and legal action will be taken against him or her, police chiefs have warned.
