Dubai: Britons get jail time in sex on beach case

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates - A British couple charged with having sex on the beach were sentenced to three months in jail Thursday in a case that has caused controversy in this Gulf boom town.

The judge did not provide any details about his verdict, as is customary in Dubai, so it is unclear whether Michelle Palmer and Vince Acors were found guilty of engaging in intercourse, or some lesser offense.

The two Britons, who are both in their 30s and met at an all-you-can-drink champagne brunch before the alleged incident occurred, were arrested in July and later charged with sex outside of marriage, public indecency and drunkenness.

In addition to the three-month jail sentence, Judge Hamdi Mustafa Abu el-Khair levied a 1,000 dirham (US$272) fine against each of the defendants and ordered them to be deported from Dubai after serving their prison time.

"I will appeal (the verdict) and ask a judge to look at the medical report that says they did not have sex," their lawyer, Hassan Matter, told The Associated Press after Thursday's ruling.

Both previously admitted they were drunk but denied having sex. The two were not in the courtroom Thursday to hear the judge's verdict, and it was unclear if they would remain out of prison while their lawyer appealed the case.

Matter said he will submit his appeal after the judge issues a formal explanation of his verdict, which the lawyer expects in a week to 10 days. The defense has to file an appeal within 15 days.

"I think the judge gave a small punishment for a kiss, not sex on the beach," said Matter.

The couple could have received two years in prison if convicted of all charges.

Public displays of affection are illegal in Dubai — a city that has worked hard to cultivate an image as a haven for Western tourists and businesses in the Middle East but has a conservative legal code based on Islamic laws and tribal rules.




Everything in bold is what I thought was hilarious/ridiculous.

That is so ridiculous. If I got prosecuted for how many times I've had sex in public, I'd be put away for life. :)

They are lucky they didn't get stoned, and I mean that in the non pot smoking way.

wow. and for a place that is trying to cater to western tourists, they aren't off to a good start. public displays of affection are pretty common place in the west...

Flipper was played mainly by a female dolphin named Susie, and occasionally by other females named Patty, Kathy, Scotty and Squirt. Female dolphins were chosen because they are less aggressive than males and their skins (unlike the skins of male dolphins) are usually free from scars and other disfigurations acquired in altercations with other dolphins. The five dolphins performed all of Flipper's thespian chores except the famous tail walk, a trick they were unable to master completely. A male dolphin named Clown was brought in for scenes involving the tail walk.[1] The dolphins playing Flipper on the show were trained by Richard O'Barry. The famous "voice" of Flipper was actually the doctored song of a Kookaburra bird.

if they actually had it...not shocking. Your stupid if you have sex in public in Dubai. Tourists have to respect the countries they are visiting. You know it's a strict Islamic country...you know you can get killed for smuggling drugs or recieve much jail time just for a very small amount, what do you think they would do for sex in public?

but yea, kissing and all that...scary if you can get serious time for that. geeze
