Jailed for five-star sex

Four Emiratis – two men and two women, all in their twenties – have been jailed for six months each in Dubai for having sex in a five-star hotel.

One of them, a married woman, was convicted of adultery along with her lover. Her unmarried sister-in-law was found guilty of having sex with a lover. The two couples were allegedly caught red-handed. Gulf News reports:

Law enforcement officers said the crime was exposed because another boyfriend of the married woman became jealous when he saw her going out with another man. He phoned the police and gave them the license plate number for the other man's car, accusing him of driving recklessly and causing a disturbance in front of his house.
