A Norwegian woman sentenced to 16 months in jail in Dubai for having sex outside marriage after she reported an alleged rape said Friday. she decided to speak out in hopes of drawing attention to the risks of outsiders misunderstanding the Islamic-influenced legal codes in this cosmopolitan city.

Dalelv, who worked for an interior design firm in Qatar since 2011, claims she was sexually assaulted by a co-worker in March while she was attending a business meeting in Dubai.

She said she fled to the hotel lobby and asked for the police to be called. The hotel staff asked if she was sure she wanted to involve the police, Dalelv said.

"Of course I want to call the police," she said. "That is the natural reaction where I am from."

But what does this have to do with Somalis? We're not Arabs.

The ruling was based on Islamic law not somalis Law. Besides at the beginning of this year, a somali woman rape victim and a reporter who wrote an article about the rape, were jailed in somalia but were later released after an uproar from international community.

Here is what quran says about rape:

Qur'an (24:13)- "Why did they not bring four witnesses of it? But as they have not brought witnesses they are liars before Allah."

Qur'an (24:4)- "And those who accuse free women then do not bring four witnesses (to adultery), flog them..."
