Assalāmu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullāhi Wabarakath,
This is the latest talk of the town in Dubai. It's utterly disgusting, and I really really hope she gets what she deserves.
It reminds of the various ahadith which mention that people will start committing illegal sexual intercourse on the streets and immoral activities will be spread. And then the hour will come. Subhan'Allah, this is happening in a Muslim Country. Wa - iyadhbillah.
What I find more pathetic is that she is actually trying to defend herself and get people to sympathise with her. Utterly disgusting.
A British businesswoman is facing six years in a foreign jail after she was allegedly caught having drunken sex on a beach in Dubai.Michelle Palmer, manager of a publishing firm, was arrested after a police officer reportedly found her and a British holidaymaker in a compromising position on Jumeirah Beach in the Arab state.

Miss Palmer told the Sun that she fears she will be 'made an example of' under the strict laws of a country where even mild public displays of affection are frowned upon.She faces and her fellow accused face a sentence of between three months and six years in jail in the state, one of seven that makes up the United Arab Emirates.
She told the newspaper: "Because this is known everywhere they're going to make an example of us and we're going to get a higher sentence.
"We are in so much trouble and my family and everybody are affected. Until someone is in this situation they could never know what it's like. It's bad - it's so, so bad.
"They are being pushed into a corner to make an example of us. I'm panicking - my mum is on anti-depressants. I can't say anything else. I've got to go."
Miss Palmer, is said to been drinking champagne during a brunch with colleagues last Friday before agreeing to go for a walk on the beach with a friend of a colleague.
