Two Brit teachers thrown in Oman JAIL after ‘rescuing dogs from cruel owner’

TWO British teachers have been thrown in an Oman jail after attempting to rescue abused dogs from their cruel owner, according to reports.

The duo were working as English language teachers in its capital, Muscat, for the British Council.

But they have been held behind bars for 12 days accused of stealing pets and other charges.

The teachers were reportedly trying to save two dogs who were being mistreated by an owner who left them out in the heat all day.

But they were accused of theft, it is understood.

One of the teachers is said to believe they are being kept behind bars because of further accusations of drink-driving and being publicly intoxicated, which they deny.

A British Council spokeswoman said: “We are aware of an incident in relation to two British teachers employed locally in Oman.

“We cannot discuss the details of an ongoing legal case and await the outcome of due process by the Omani authorities.”

And the Foreign Office said: “We are providing support to two British women, and their families, following their arrest in Oman.

“We are in contact with the Omani authorities.”
