Woman Gets 3 Months in Jail For Having One-Night Stand

A 21-year-old Filipino woman, identified only by her initials "HS", has been sentenced to three months in prison after she pleaded guilty and admitted having a one-night stand in the bathroom of a Dubai nightclub with a man whose name she didn't even bother to get. Consequently, the woman, who was visiting the country, became pregnant and suffered a miscarriage.
She said she was having drinks at the club's bar when she was approached by a man who befriended her and asked her to join him on the dance floor. "After dancing for a while, I excused myself to go to the bathroom," she recalled. The man followed her, according to prosecution records. "When I got out of the toilet booth, I was surprised to see him inside the bathroom. I asked him what he was doing there, but he didn't answer. Instead, he held me and before I knew it he was kissing me and leading me inside the booth," she testified to police officers at Al Rifffa police station.
H.S. said she later had consensual sex with the man. Records revealed that she was drunk at that time. H.S said she doesn't know the name of the man but described him as of average height and well-built. "He was from the Philippines. He had a broad body and average height. His body was tanned. He wore a shirt and faded blue jeans," she told prosecutors. About a week later, she said, she began to bleed but thought it was due to her menstrual cycle. She said she didn't know she was pregnant and had a miscarriage until she was told by doctors at Dubai Hospital where she was admitted for treatment weeks later. Doctors who treated H.S. testified she had had a miscarriage. The Dubai Court of Misdemeanours also fined her Dh1,000 for consuming alcohol. She will be deported after serving her jail term.
So men in United Arab Emirates are allowed to beat their wives, but a single woman is not allowed to engage in sexual relations with someone she just met?
