Sunday 21 July 2013

A Norwegian woman who was given a 16-month jail term in Dubai after reporting being raped has warned other outsiders about misunderstanding the city’s legal system.
Marte Deborah Dalelv had worked for an interior design firm in Qatar since 2011 and said she was sexually assaulted by a coworker while on a business trip to Dubai.
She said she fled down to the hotel reception, where staff questioned her desire to report the incident to the police.
Police gave the 24-year-old a medical examination and blood test for alcohol, she said.
She was then detained for four days, accused of having sex outside of marriage – a crime not normally pressed against foreigners.
