If convicted they can get two years in jail. But, please, don’t overreact. We are dealing with a different culture and we need to respect it. That’s how they do it in Dubai and I don’t think any of us have the moral authority to judge.
A British couple on trial for allegedly having sex on a Dubai beach asked the judge on Tuesday to be allowed to leave the country.
Michelle Palmer and Vince Acors, speaking in low voices, asked the judge for a “quick ruling” that would let them return to Britain. But judge Hamad Abdul Jawad disregarded the request and scheduled another hearing for Sept. 9 to hear testimony from the policeman who arrested the couple.
Palmer, 36, and Acors, 34, were arrested in the early hours July 5 on a Dubai beach after they had been at a hotel party. They were later charged with having sex outside of marriage, public indecency and public drunkenness.
Horse crap! Of course we can and we should judge other cultures. Sure, it is lewd to have sex on a beach. But two years!?!? Now, if the judge sends them to jail for their horribly awful teeth….
