An Arab man returned home with a friend from a booze night in Ajman, jolted his wife out of her bed and let his friend rape her before the two men sodomized each other.
The two men had earlier been sentenced to life in prison and ordered deported out of the UAE before an appeals court slashed the verdict to three years in jail. The sentence was again modified by the Federal Supreme Court which gave them four years.
The wife had told court her husband returned home drunk with his friend, woke her up and asked her to let his friend have sex with her.
When she refused, he threatened to kill her, prompting her to yield to his demand out of concern for her children who were in bed at that time.
The husband denied the charges on the grounds he was drunk but his friend confessed that he raped the woman and had sodomy with her husband during that night. Medical tests showed the wife was raped and the two men had sex with each other.
