Marte Deborah Dalelv was released on Monday, July 22nd.
We are amazed by the massive support for releasing Marte. Each and all of us have been instrumental in securing this happy ending. We are proud of the Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Espen Barth Eide, for his active personal commitment and engagement to release Marte.
It has been reported that her rapist was also pardoned. We find this disgraceful. Let’s not forget that this still happens to women in many countries and let’s keep up the fight for human rights.

24 year old Marte Deborah Dalelv from Norway was raped in Dubai. She did what any reasonable person might do: she went to the police. Instead of getting the help she needed, she was put on trial. Her crime was being the victim of rape. She has now been convicted of having sex outside of marriage and sentenced to 16 month in prison - in Dubai.
We request that the government of Dubai set Marte free
