Norway ‘rape victim’ jailed in Dubai for extramarital sex

A Norwegian woman in Dubai who reported being raped only to receive a 16-month jail sentence for having sex outside marriage is appealing against the verdict.

Marte Deborah Dalelv, who was also convicted of perjury and drinking alcohol, has taken refuge in a Norwegian church.

The 24-year-old interior designer was on a business trip when she says the attack happened after a night out with colleagues.

“I woke up and I realised I was being raped and I went down to the lobby and I asked them to call the police for me. They asked me are you sure you want to call the police? And I thought of course I want to call the police because that’s the natural reaction where I am from,” she said.
