"This verdict flies in the face of our notion of justice," Foreign Minister Espen Barth Eide told the NTB news agency. "It appears very odd that a person who reports rape is convicted for crimes that in our part of the world are not considered crimes."
24-year-old Marte Deborah Dalelv was convicted on Wednesday of having sex outside of marriage, for drinking alcohol, and for perjury.
"Additionally, this verdict is highly problematic from a human rights perspective," Eide added.
Also on Thursday, her parents recalled the sequence of events that led to their daughter's imprisonment.
