Fujairah Shariah court orders man to be stoned to death for adultery

By Salah Al Deberkey / 11 June 2006

FUJAIRAH ó The Fujairah Shariah Court yesterday ordered Shahin Abdull Rahman to be stoned to death and Asmaa Bikham Bijam to serve one year in jail along with 100 lashes, following their conviction of adultery. She was not sentenced to death since she is still single.

The case dated back to last April when a national knew of his maidís illicit sexual affair with one of her compatriots, who used to sneak to her room every day and practised adultery with her till the early hours of the morning.

The national kept an eye on the maid. He one day pretended to go to sleep and saw her opening the back door to a stranger, who sneaked to her room. He immediately called the police, who rushed to the maidís room, and found the accused naked in bed.

The man admitted to being married and unable to bring his wife who stayed home with his children, and added that he met the maid in a market, and repetitively practised adultery with her since then. He was referred to the court, which ordered him to be stoned to death, and the maid to be imprisoned for one year and given 100 lashes.
