A man who accidentally saw a text on his wife’s mobile phone sent to a strange man followed her and found that she was cheating on him.
The Indian, BH, 45, then called police, who arrested the woman and her lover in his apartment in Sports City.
Prosecutors charged the Indian wife, AS, 35, and her Pakistani lover, MA, 43, a general manager, with having consensual sex outside wedlock.
The woman said that she met MA while visiting a Nakheel office and the two spoke about the economy and trading.
“He asked for my number and I gave it to him — I really liked his character and then we became more intimate and we started to meet,” said AS.
At Dubai Court of Misdemeanours she confessed and asked for her husband’s forgiveness. “This is not related to the case but a personal matter between you and your husband,” the presiding judge told her.
