A 22-year-old Dutch tourist was charged with adultery in Doha, Qatar, after reporting to authorities that she’d been raped. The woman, who was not identified, had spent three months in detention before being sentenced to a fine and a one-year suspended sentence Monday. She was, however, allowed to leave the country and return home. A representative for the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the Dutch ambassador was assisting the woman and that the Dutch Embassy in Doha had been involved in the case from the very beginning. The man who allegedly raped her was also charged and sentenced to 140 lashings, the Dutch representative said.
