On Monday, 22 July, 2013, I was interviewed by Brian Carlton doing the Drive program 3-6pm on Radio 2UE. The subject was the trial in Muslim Dubai of a Norwegian girl who had been raped, but due to the barbarity of that country’s Sharia law, she was found guilty of perjury and illegal sexual activity.
Raped and then sentenced to jail under Islamic law she was unable to prove her case. Proof requires four male Muslim witnesses of high repute, or a confession by the offender.
The question, why doesn’t the Australian Government warn women of the dangers of such laws in Muslim countries? Is the message, if you’re raped in a Muslim country, don’t report it because that will result in you being turned from the victim, into the offender?
Please NOTE: As is common with radio interviews done by telephone, the volume at my end is down – recommend you turn up your volume to hear this interview clearly.
