Courts records showed that a landlord overheard unfamiliar voices coming from the maid's room last April. He and his wife broke into her room, and found her in bed with a strange man. The culprits admitted before the police to having repetitively had illegal sexual relations.

The accused were referred to the public prosecution, which charged both the expatriates with adultery and arraigned them before the court.
