Raped Dutch Laura expelled from Qatar


Laura, arrested for having been raped in Qatar

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

Qatar expels Dutch Laura

Today, 09:32

The Dutch woman Laura (22) who was jailed in Qatar has been given a suspended sentence of one year and expulsion. …

Laura was not present in court. …

Earlier proceedings had been in Arabic, which Laura does not understand.

According to her lawyer, she was arrested after she had reported rape. Extramarital sex is illegal in Qatar. …

The man who allegedly raped Laura was found guilty as well. He was sentenced to a hundred lashes for “sexual intercourse” and forty lashes for alcohol consumption.

Though rape is a horrible crime, which should never ever be equated which voluntary sexual intercourse, as happens in Qatar: there should never be flogging in any country.

The rapist claimed that Laura was supposedly a prostitute. Algerian Dutch columnist Hadjar Benmiloud points out in Metro daily today that Dutch Internet site Vlinders Crime agreed with the rapist, calling Laura a “whore”. Vlinders Crime is an Islamophobic hate site unable to write Dutch without spelling and grammar errors in half of all words.

Also from NOS TV today:

Laura’s mother is overjoyed; her daughter will come home. “I can not even describe my joy. She may have been convicted, but she will come home.”
