A Dubai appeals court upheld the one-month jail sentence for British couple Ayman Najafi and Charlotte Adams who were convicted of kissing in a restaurant.
An Emirati woman complained about their public kiss in a restaurant, which the couple attests was just a peck on the cheek in greeting. But they were arrested in November and convicted of inappropriate behavior and illegal drinking.
The appeals court judge upheld their original sentence of jail time and a fine of 1,000 dirhams ($270) each. They have 30 days to appeal to a higher court.
Talk about strict enforcement of PDA!
