Report: Lebanese Waiter, Filipina on Trial for Dubai Beach Sex


A Lebanese waiter and a Filipina saleswoman have been accused of public intimacy after police caught them having consensual sex on a public beach in Dubai, Gulf News reported on Tuesday.

“Prosecutors charged the 21-year-old waiter, A.B., and his 30-year-old Filipina girlfriend, M.B., with having out-of-wedlock sex in a public place and committing an indecent act in public,” said the English-language daily.

The suspects did not attend Monday's hearing at the Dubai Misdemeanors Court. The presiding judge adjourned the case to August 18.

Gulf News said that the Lebanese waiter and the Filipina admitted having consensual sex.

"We were at the beachside having a walk along with my two friends. I took her to a poorly lit spot near the rocks... when we finished and were getting dressed, police arrived,” the man has reportedly said.

M.B. confirmed A.B.'s statement, the daily said.

Public display of affection, such as touching, kissing or hugging, is illegal in Dubai and couples — particularly if not married — can be detained by police for indecency.

The city has worked hard to cultivate an image as a party hot spot for Western tourists and businesses in the Middle East but has a conservative legal code based on Islamic laws and tribal rules.

What a bunch of hypocrites.....!!! Dubai is full of open prostitution night and day spots. It is all done openly..... so why arrest these 2 down trotted people? At least, they are in love.

They did have it coming. it's not like they are the first couple to go through this. what happened to going home. I mean they both must live somewhere, or have a friend who has a house.

they'll probably get a lot of sex where they're going now

Truth of a matter is people can not have sex any public places no matter where! I live in Canada and people can not do that..... When things get hot, someone will always say to the couple... Get a room! Regardless if they have places with open prostitution or whatever.... certain things should always be discreet....

Just my opinion :)
