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 25-year-old was given a sentence of 16 months

The sex traffiking industry of women, men, girls, and boys is serious and evil and disgusting business. It is international. It is slave trade.
Listen to this radio show from 106.7 “the Fan” in Washington D.C. From May 17, I believe, in 2013. A caller named “Hagerstown Steve” discusses with the laughing, joking sports show hosts “the Junkies” the nature of the prostitution business.
This sound clip file doesn’t cover a more extended conversation about the availability of paid sex in Dubai, with the caller and the sports radio show hosts engaging in witty banter and yukking it up. I recall the conversation extending to the topic of having sex added to your rental contract. (Which is not in this clip.)
My point here is that these show hosts are laughing and joking about sex traffiking and sex slavery.
Why do these clowns and their producer still have jobs?
I feel bad for her but she had to know what she was getting into when she got on that plane.
Id never visit a Muslim country, not even the so-called moderate ones.
I really hope to see Petra in Jordan. But with an Israeli stamp on my passport, I’ll probably need to get a new one first.
Why would a woman from a civilized country go to one of those hellholes anyway?
The article indicated it was a business trip. Likely she had no choice if she wanted to keep her job.
I visited several, dressed in combat gear.
A smarter move is for women to avoid Islamic countries.
Saw a horrible documentary about sex trafficking once.
It involved young women from the Ukraine, where the economy has basically collapsed, there is no opportunity, and many of their families have medical bills having to do with Chernobyl-caused issues.
They sign up with traffickers and are whisked off to Turkey, and then into these various Middle-Eastern countries where their preference is for blondes to act out their sickest, most deeply repressed fantasies.
Few escape and live to tell their tale.
I doubt it. See my post #38.
Business trips, especially to exotic destinations for exotic assignments, are one of the quickest ways to climb the corporate ladder.
Sort of like volunteering for dangerous combat assignments in the military.
My guess is that this young lady is going to put a little less value on climbing the corporate ladder and a little more on her personal safety going forward.

“Id never visit a Muslim country, not even the so-called moderate ones”
Agreed, agreed, agreed. I’m in no way a big traveler so it would probably never even come up, but I wouldn’t even stop over at an airport in one of those places. Anybody who goes there is nuts as this woman’s case clearly shows.
You know, if the west didn’t do business with these people, if we just shut them down and shut them out they’d probably crumble in very short order.
I’ve only been in a couple of Muslim countries. Malaysia is fairly relaxed and, for the tourist, the people are mostly friendly but, when we went, the shadow of PM Mahathir Mohamad was intimidating. You had the feeling that things could get nasty very quickly.
In contrast, communist countries were disheartening due to the enforced poverty, but much less tension. The average person in the street was friendly and often curious/envious of capitalist culture. Being able to speak the language may have made the difference (Laos, Northern Burma - Tai Yai).
Religious fervor may be inherently more threatening.
I would tend to agree....I would have been at least curious to visit the former Eastern bloc during the Cold War, sure I knew I'd be watched at all times, but at least I would have felt safe.
We once sent a programmer in 2000 to Riyahd. He lived in the British compound and stayed out of trouble.
The Saudi bank decided that they would not sign off on the project completion and kept adding tasks - classic mission creep.
5 and a half months later, it took a call from a London (very) senior executive to get his passport back so he could leave.
He promptly collected his per diem and quit.
Considering this woman's ordeal happened in Dubai - wow. They are tolerant compared to the Saudis.
Not at all. I've been there. Beer is over $12 a bottle. And you're constantly ignoring fat, dirty old men with 4 teen-aged wives following behind.
Once again Gomer Pyle says “Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!, Shame, Shame Shame!”
Things are more relaxed in Laos, Cambodia and Burma. I’d like to see some things in Burma that were closed off (to protect the drug traffic and isolate the Karen and other tribal rebels).
My SIL went to Dubai a couple of years ago. The university she works for was trying to set up an exchange program with some university in Dubai. This story makes me shudder. My SIL is pretty attractive ... but she told me her hosts took good care of her. Now I see why.
In hind-sight I guess the job wasn’t wroth keeping. I quit a job when they wanted to transfer me to another location. Found a better one within a month.
What is with that?
