Under Article 356 of the UAE Penal Code, persons caught committing sexual acts outside marriage can be liable to a penalty of a minimum jail term of one year plus deportation. Both of you can also lose your gratuity under Article 120 (g) of the Labour Code. Hindi lang ang asawa ng ka-relasyon mo ang puwedeng mag-report sa pulis. Any person who has knowledge about your illicit sexual activities can report you to the police. If you are in the Philippines, you can be held liable for either of the following:
