A court in Ras Al Khaimah sentenced an African housemaid to three months in prison and ordered her deportation on charges of getting pregnant after an affair with the 15-year-old son of her Arab employer.
The boy’s father had taken his maid to hospital last year and doctors informed the police about her pregnancy.
The maid confessed to police investigators that she had a relationship with the son of her employer.
“The court sentenced her to three months and ordered her deportation on charges of adultery and illegitimate pregnancy,” the Sharjah-based Arabic language daily Alkhaleej said.
It said the court also sentenced the boy for three months, after which he will be handed over to his father to be under his control.
