NY POST – A South African man and his new fiancee have been detained in the United Arab Emirates for having sex outside of marriage — after a doctor treated the woman for stomach cramps and discovered she was pregnant, a report says.
Emlyn Culverwell‚ 29, and Iryna Nohai, 27, were both arrested in Abu Dhabi on Jan. 27 following the medical checkup, according to News24.
The newly engaged couple have reportedly remained in custody ever since.
“The only thing they did wrong was fall in love,” explained Culverwell’s mother, Linda.
Nohai, who hails from the Ukraine, claimed to be suffering from stomach cramps and had been rushed to Medeor Medical Centre in Yas Mall before she and Culverwall were taken into custody, News24 reports.
