Nice Husband, Nice Law
This story in the Telegraph today makes me despair. I despair not only about the nasty vindictiveness of people, but also about the equally nasty meddling intolerance of religions.
Sally Antia and her husband lived in Dubai for more than 12 years, but had been estranged for some time. Sally had formed a relationship with another man in England, and he flew to Dubai to meet her. Seizing his chance, the delightful Mr Antia then contacted the local police to inform them that the hideous crime of adultery was being committed. Sally and her boyfriend were duly arrested and she was held in a squalid police cell, along with up to a hundred other people, and fed with maggot-ridden food. The case has now been heard, and Sally and her boyfriend were jailed for two months, although they may be released and deported in a week, with Sally likely to lose her two daughters.
