"The identity of the Norwegian woman who was sentenced to 16 months in prison for extramarital sex after she reported being raped in Dubai has been revealed for the first time today.
Smiling happily into the camera, Marte Deborah Dalelv looks like she doesn't have a care in the world.
But the 24-year-old was brutally raped while on a business trip in United Arab Emirates and was handed a prison sentence for having sex outside of marriage after reporting it to police.
Ms Dalelv reported the sexual assault in March this year, after which she had to spend days in a cell before she was allowed to use a telephone."
This is far from unusual, apparently.
"Earlier this year Australian Alicia Gali, 27, spoke of how she was thrown in a Dubai jail for eight months after she reported a rape.
Miss Gali was working at hotel chain Starwood when her drink was spiked in the staff bar.
She awoke to find that three colleagues had raped her, but when she went to a hospital for help, they turned her over to the police and she was charged with illicit sex outside marriage."
