DNA tests fail to establish illegal sex on the beach charge against Brit coupleSeptember 3rd, 2008 - 4:22 pm ICT by ANI
London, Sept 3 (ANI): DNA and medical tests carried out on British couple charged with having sex on the Jumeirah Beach in Dubai Michelle Palmer, 36, and Vince Acors, 34 have produced negative results.
Acors, of Bromley, southeast London and Michelle Palmer, of Oakham, Rutland, who denied allegations that they had unmarried sex and were indecent in public on July 5, were made to have a DNA test to prove their claim.
After the adjournment of their case at Dubai’’s Court of First Instance on September 2, their defence lawyer Hassan Matter insisted that the pair would be proved innocent.
Medical reports for Michelle said that she didn”t have sex. The DNA from Michelle said she didn”t have sex, the Scotsman quoted him as saying outside court.
“They were arrested at about 1am and they went for a medical report at about 8:30am.
“The medical examination of Vincent didn”t give any sure findings, he added.
The lawyer further claimed that the statements that made by the witnesses, including a police officer and a taxi driver, were “wrong” and inconsistent with each other, and that the defence would dispute their account.
The hearing for the case has been moved to next week, when the police officer will be called to give evidence.
However, both Matter and a spokesman for the judge, Hamad Abdellatif Abdelgawad, said that it was unlikely to be resolved then.
“The judge gave us a new hearing to bring the policeman to court,” Matter said.
“I will ask this policeman some questions. We will take another date after Tuesday, he added. (ANI)
