Marte Dalelv: Norwegian woman convicted after reporting rape now loses job

In March of this year, Marte Deborah Dalelv was on a business trip to Dubai. She was raped after a night out with colleagues and went to the police who imprisoned her and, four days later, charged HER with three crimes including having sex outside of marriage. She was convicted this week and has now been sentenced to 16 months in prison for having the temerity to report her assault, compared with the 13 months that her alleged rapist received. Marte, from Norway, is now officially wanted by the Dubai authorities, despite the Norwegian government having apparently secured a "conditional release" for her.

To add insult to injury, reports now suggest that Marte Dalelv has been sacked from her job, due to her, "unacceptable and improper behaviour". Her boss, Wissam Al Mana, for whom she worked at Al Mana Interiors, seemingly sent her a personally signed letter to inform her that she was, "terminated for misconduct and breach of [her] employment duties, effective immediately [...] due to [her] unacceptable and improper behavior during your last business trip in Dubai, which has resulted in [her] arrest by the Police Authorities in UAE".
