Translated from Dutch NOS TV:
Qatar expels Dutch Laura
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.
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.
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.”
