Default Norwegian Woman Raped in UAE, could spend a year in prison.

Pretty twisted story. Woman gets raped and calls the cops. Cops arrest her for intoxication and having sex outside of marriage. Now she's stuck in prison in Dubai and faces over a year in prison.

http://www.cnn.com/2013/07/20/world/...pe-controversy


Another weird twist to the plot, apparently her company fired her for drinking alcohol at a work convention... and the owner of her company, a Qatar billionaire, is apparently secretly married to Janet Jackson?


And this place is going to host the World Cup in 2022?

Should invade them and steal all their oil for being a bunch of disgusting hypocrites and religious fanatics.

Women are still by far the most oppressed minority in the world, and they are not even a minority. Queue all the moral relativists lining up to say it is their culture to treat women like slaves.

oh ya my bad. I mixed them up because the owner of the company is from Qatar, who IS hosting the World Cup.

I assume these countries have similar laws against alcohol consumption, sex, etc. though. I think I remember reading it's illegal to be gay in Qatar. Gonna be a homo-free World Cup I guess.

Everyone in the West is in agreement that slavery is wrong and that efforts should be made to eradicate it wherever possible.

Bunch of crazy Islamic countries treat women like personal property:

'It is a cultural choice and none of our business'

At least this creates some awareness. Yes, it is illegal to have any extramarital sex and consume alcohol in many Islamic countries. Yes, you could potentially go to jail for a long time if you admit to these things.

Please inform yourselves of the laws of any country you reside in / plan going to, using common sense is not always enough and many protections you think you have might not apply.

I wonder what the punishment is for being gay in Qatar? Do they lock you up jail with a bunch of men... because that doesn't seem like much punishment.

Or maybe they lock the gay guys up with the women who got raped.

I'm all for knowing and abiding by the laws... but there isn't much a woman can do about getting raped. What you're saying is that she just shouldn't say anything, which seems to be the best way to go in UAE.

Those islamic countries are so barbaric. They treat women like garbage.
I can't see any reason for visiting them except work related.

As for the world cup in 2022, petroldollars allowed Quatar to buy that event.

I doubt she'll remain in prison. The UAE will cave into international pressure. Well hopefully anyways because that's all sorts of messed up.

that escalated quickly.


On a serious note, rape cases like this one has had happen before in Dubai and the victim mostly end up being charged with drinking in the public, or sex outside of marriage...
