Default Norwegian woman raped in Dubai finds herself jailed and convicted Read mor

Dubai - After reporting that she'd been raped to Dubai police, a 25-year-old Norwegian woman who was on a business trip to the United Arab Emirates city found herself being jailed on "suspicion of having sex outside of marriage."

Following the report of her rape to police, the 25-year-old had her passport and personal possessions seized and was immediately placed in a jail cell.
It took three days before she was able to gain access to a phone and contact her family to let them know what had happened to her.

The law there says in order for someone to be convicted of rape it takes either a confession or 4 male witnesses.

That's got to be one of the worst laws in the world.

The UAE isn't the only country who has a witness requirement to prove rape. Iran, Saudia Arabia, Afghanistan even Pakistan, any country that bases their laws on Sharia law still have this on the books. I often use it as an example to people who falsely claim the US had the worst laws in the world.

Neither extreme a good thing. It shouldn't take 4 witnesses though. They have rape kits and DNA.

They arrested her for "sex outside of marriage".
I wonder if they also arrested the man?
I'm guessing not.

Well that is something.
I can see why women don't report rape but I have never heard of a man getting any consequences so there is at least some equity in this case.
I still think it is awful and one reason I would never vacation in a Muslim country. No worries, I'm quite sure they will continue without me.
For the record, I feel women who are proven to have lie about being raped deserve consequences on par with what the mans punisment would have been.
