Rape Victim Imprisoned in Dubai

The BBC:

Interior designer Marte Deborah Dalelv was on a business trip in Dubai when she says she was raped.

The 24-year-old reported the March attack to the police but found herself charged with having extramarital sex, drinking alcohol, and perjury.

At least this hasn’t happened in Texas yet.


UPDATE, July 22, 2013 1:56 PM: Perhaps due to pressure from the media in the West, Dalelv has been pardoned. That’s good news, but I don’t think it’s the end of the story.
