Palestinian Student Imprisoned For 39 Months In Dubai In Drug And Unmarried Sex Case
A Palestinian student who had an affair with a married woman in Dubai has been sentenced to jail for 39 months. He was also charged for consuming drugs at a hotel room.
The woman’s husband complained to Dubai police that his wife was having an affair with the 26-year-old student. The two were caught at a hotel room when police raided the place and found both of them under the influence of drugs.
The court also penalised the student with Dh20,000 for providing drugs to the women. The defendant appealed the ruling before the Appeal Court where he sought to have his punishment overturned.
The Palestinian contended that he didn’t provide amphetamine, methamphetamine and Pregabalin to the woman. However, his appeal was rejected by the judge Eisa Al Sharif.
A police lieutenant said they raided the hotel room shortly after the husband had complained to them that his wife was cheating on him.
“We raided the hotel room and arrested the couple. Upon questioning, the housewife said she had sex three times with the student, who confirmed her claims.
“She also claimed that she consumed mind-altering substances that she took from the Palestinian.
“The student claimed that his brother had taken the drugs from a Pakistani … he also claimed that he had been providing the housewife with drugs since July 2017,” the police officer said.
Meanwhile, the woman has been sentenced to 18 months in jail for having unmarried sex and consuming drugs, she will be deported after serving her sentence.
The Palestinian defendant’s appellate ruling remains subject to appeal before the Cassation Court.
