UAE prostitutes who stripped off jail uniforms jailed and deported

Two prostitutes who stripped off their jail uniforms in court in objection to their charges will be spending six months in jail.

ABU DHABI // Two prostitutes who stripped off their jail uniforms in court as an objection to their treatment were yesterday sentenced to six months in prison.

The pair were among 12 women charged with prostitution after being found outside a hotel in the capital soliciting their services and put on trial at the Criminal Court.

When the judge adjourned the case the pair ripped off their green uniforms and threw themselves to the floor, refusing to return to their cells.

They will be deported after serving their jail terms.
