Dubai: A woman has been jailed for having consensual sex with a businessman who suffered a cardiac arrest and died shortly following the act.

The Dubai Court of Misdemeanours on Monday jailed the 28-year-old Iranian woman visitor to two months in jail after she was pronounced guilty of having consensual sex.

Presiding Judge Abdul Majid Al Nezami, who pronounced Monday's judgment, said the accused, S.I., will be deported after the completion of her punishment.

When the woman first appeared in court last month, she pleaded not guilty and defended that the deceased was her fiancé and that they had signed a temporary marriage contract in Iran.

Prosecutors accused S.I. of having sex with 47-year-old Iranian, A.M., who suffered a cardiac failure and died in a hotel in Dubai.

Prosecution records showed that the couple was having sex in the hotel room when the man's breathing became heavy and he fell to the floor.

The woman was said to have called the security for help. Police and paramedics rushed to the hotel. The woman was detained as the businessman was pronounced dead.

The woman told police interrogators that after the sexual act, A.M. moved aside and complained of chest pain and was hardly breathing. She alleged that she called paramedics who failed to revive the man.

S.I. alleged during questioning that she informed A.M.'s friends about what happened and they in turn informed the police.

The woman, according to prosecution records, denied indulging in the flesh trade and sleeping with the victim for money.

Forensic reports confirmed that A.M. had earlier suffered a heart attack and his body showed signs of an open-heart surgery.

A friend of the deceased told the police that they had come to Dubai on a visit visa two days before the incident.
