Villa of vice

A reminder and a warning that Dubai is still part of an Islamic country, despite the pubs, bars, nightclubs, massage parlours and multitudes of reines de la nuit prowling around Mankhool. Even western citizenship failed to protect this British woman of Arab origin and her lover, jailed for three months for adultery.

"The British woman, of Arab origin, was caught with the Arab man in his Dubai villa. Police had been watching the villa for five days following permission from the Dubai Public Prosecution department.

"The Dubai Police Criminal Laboratory proved a sexual relationship between the woman and the man. She had been living with him in the villa."

There are scores of cohabitees in the country, of both the year-round and single-night variety. The jails could no way accommodate them all, but it certainly pays to be discreet and vigilant.

Dear Secretdubai,

I dont know whether you knowingly or unknowingly did not mention the fact that this woman was already married to someone else. According to Gulf News

"The guilty woman has been married to a GCC national since 2004.

Her husband filed a lawsuit against her at Dubai Court of Appeal, accusing her of being unfaithful"

Please present the whole story, last time u were very angry about the Ajman episode.

Hi dubaiguy!

I don't like to quote too much of an article, because of breaching copyright, but I always provide a link to the full text.

I did refer to the fact that the people involved were married, by the term "adultery", which implies that they are married to different partners. From here:

"Voluntary sexual intercourse between a married person and a partner other than the lawful spouse."
