HAVING extramarital affairs could land you in jail.

That was what an Egyptian woman living in Dubai found out after she was recently jailed and deported after having an extramarital affair with a Palestinian.

The authorities discovered the affair after the woman, who recently gave birth to a stillborn child in a local hospital, failed to provide a marriage certificate to verify the father’s identity.  

The Palestinian, who apparently abandoned the woman after she got pregnant last year, was later apprehended by Dubai police and charged with having consensual sex without being married along with the woman.

The woman later claimed that she and the man were married according to customs in her country and that he paid for her medical checkups, but failed to provide documents to substantiate her claims.

The Palestinian, meanwhile, argued that he did not have sex with the woman and that she had fabricated the allegations to cover up for her flatmate, who was the person with whom she had unmarried sex and got pregnant.

The Dubai court sentenced the couple to a month in jail, followed by deportation.

CATHOLIC Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) President and Lingayen Archbishop Socrates Villegas has condemned those behind fake news attributing to their group a statement stating among others that they were blaming the military for the killings of terrorist leaders Isnilon Hapilon and Omar Maute.

Describing those behind the proliferation of fake news as ‘group of liars’, Villegas clarified that contrary to the post, the CBCP instead praised the military for their gallantry. 

“On the contrary we laud the gallantry of our soldiers and their heroic efforts to free Marawi. We will gladly join the government in rebuilding the…

THE Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in the Philippines has announced that Filipinos who wish to visit Taiwan beginning November 1, 2017 can now go there without the need for a visa.

The visa free entry to Taiwan will last up to July 31, 2018, after which the office will review whether to continue the process or not. 

Dr. Gary Song-Huann Lin, Taiwan Representative to the Philippines, expressed hope that the historical visa-free initiative would attract more Filipinos to visit Taiwan, noting such privilege to “build strong bilateral relations and a closer living economic community” between the Philippines and Taiwan.



“Through these efforts, we will surely enhance our bilateral tourism, economic, cultural, educational and other areas of cooperation and exchanges which will eventually bring closer cooperation between Manila and Taipei” he said. 

Meanwhile, Passengers who enter Taiwan before Nov. 1 with valid Travel Authorization Certificate (TAC) may still continue to stay for up to 30 days. #

“Marital Rape,” Krimen na sa India

Larawan mula sa Al Jazeera

ISA nang krimen sa bansang India ang pakikipagtalik ng isang lalaki sa kaniyang asawang wala pa sa hustong gulang, ayon sa kanilang pinakamataas na hukuman.

Sa desisyong inilabas ng Korte Suprema ng India noon, maituturing ng krimen sa India ang pakikipagtalik sa mga babaeng edad 17 pababa, kahit na mag-asawa ang babae at lalaki.

Idineklara rin ng mataas na hukuman na edad 18 ang dapat na maging “age of consent” sa India, taliwas sa naunang mga batas na nagsasabing hindi rape ang pakikipagtalik sa isang babae sa edad na 15 hanggang 18.

Inilabas ng Korte…
