A Filipino domestic worker in Dubai was jailed for three months for having sex with her lover in her Emirati employer’s home. In June, the 32-year-old Filipina was arrested and charged after her employer saw she had posted pictures online of her and her boyfriend inside the employer’s house in Al Qusais, The National reported.

The employer, a 74-year-old retired soldier, installed security cameras in his home to obtain proof that the domestic worker had been allowing a stranger into his home.

The employer was able to record footage of the domestic worker and her lover inside the living room and he also accused the domestic worker of stealing a ring that belonged to his wife.

“I checked her Facebook account and saw the pictures. In some of them she was with a man inside my living room. In another, she was wearing my wife’s expensive ring which went missing a while ago,” the employer said.

The employer filed a complaint to police, who arrested the Filipina. At the Dubai Criminal Court, she was sentenced to three months in prison and will be deported after completing her sentence. Police said they had not been able to identify the domestic worker’s lover.
