(Irish Journal) A 22-YEAR-OLD DUTCH woman is being held in Qatar on suspicion of adultery after she said she was raped while on holiday, her lawyer says.
The woman says she was drugged in a hotel and realised she had been raped when she woke up in an unfamiliar apartment.
“She was arrested in March on suspicion of adultery, which means having sex outside marriage,” lawyer Brian Lokollo told Dutch radio NOS-Radio1 today.
