A Norwegian woman raped in Dubai has been sentenced to 16 months for having sex outside of marriage.
The 25-year-old was in the United Arab Emirates city for business meetings in March when she was violently sexually assaulted.
She reported the incident to cops.
But, instead of investigating her case, they seized her passport and placed her under arrest. 

The Norwegian Consulate in Dubai eventually negotiated her release and the woman was placed under the protection of the local Norwegian Sailor's Church.
Thrown in a jail cell for several days, she was banned from using a phone.

But she now faces an uncertain future after being sentenced this week, reports the Norway Post.
It is not yet known whether she has returned to jail or will be allowed to return to Norway to serve her time.

"I received the harshest sentence for sex outside marriage, harshest sentence for drinking alcohol and on top of that I was found guilty of perjury," she is reported as saying.
