A Doha court on Monday convicted a Dutch woman of adultery and handed her a one-year suspended sentence after she reported being raped while on holiday in Qatar.
The woman, known only as Laura and who was not in court, was also fined 3,000 Qatari riyals ($800/710 euros) and will be deported once she pays the fine, court officials said.
The male defendant, also not in court, was given a sentence of 100 lashes for adultery and 40 lashes for consuming alcohol.
