Authorities in Dubai have dropped charges of attempted suicide against Irish national Tori Towey, who is now set to return to home.

The flight attendant was involved in an assault case with her South African husband.

The Dubai Public Prosecution on Wednesday (July 10) dropped the charge of attempted suicide against Towey after the couple withdrew the cases of assault that they filed against each other in May 2024.

According to Dubai Public Prosecution, the charge of attempted suicide against Towey was dropped “considering the circumstances of the case and to enable her to return to normal life”.

The native of Irish town Boyle has worked in the UAE since April 2023 as flight attendant for Emirates. The 28-year-old will reportedly fly back to Ireland after authorities lifted a travel ban against her on Wednesday.

Irish politician Simon Harris said that Irish embassy officials in the UAE have been assisting Towey in the case and will be escorting her to the airport “as soon as she is ready to go” and that getting her home was a “priority issue”. ICA/Expat Media
