Dubai drops sentence for Norwegian rape victim, but also for her attacker

The publicity this awful case garnered managed to press the Dubai crackpots to drop the sentence they'd first given her. Unfortunately, they also dropped charges against the attacker:
With her passport back in hand, a Norwegian woman at the center of a Dubai rape claim dispute said Monday that officials dropped her 16-month sentence for having sex outside marriage in the latest clash between the city's Islamic-based legal codes and its international branding as a Western-friendly haven.

Dubai authorities hope the pardon of the 24-year-old woman will allow them to sidestep another potentially embarrassing blow to the city's heavily promoted image as a forward-looking model of luxury, excess and cross-cultural understanding.
I don't think so. Not after they made a similar move with the rapist:
The alleged attacker, identified as a 33-year-old Sudanese man, was charged with the same offenses and received a 13-month sentence — also cleared by a pardon, according to Dalelv.
This is moral equivalence, plain and simple. The woman may have been exonerated of any wrongdoing, yet she's failed to get justice at the same time. And it's proof of the lack of justice in many Muslim countries.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
