Rape Victims Criminalised in Qatar & the UAE. Victims of rape jailed for sex outside of marriag


A woman in Qatar has been arrested for sex outside of marriage, after having filed a rape complaint with police. It sounds unbelievable, but unfortunately this occurs with frequency; and over the years, we have dealt with several cases of victims of rape being arrested, interrogated, and in some cases, even convicted of having sex outside marriage. Some women served lengthy sentences, while the man only served a month or so.
