Single mums = Criminals in UAE

I'm more than slightly taken aback by this report of a stewardess being convicted of being pregant out of wedlock:

The Singaporean stewardess - who works for an international airline and lives in Dubai - fainted on-board a plane heading to England. It was found out later that she was pregnant out of wedlock.

A court has sentenced her to one month in jail. However, the ruling has been suspended and the case has been referred to the Sharia Court after the suspect said that she is married.

It leaves a bit of a sour taste, doesn't it?
