The previous position regarding homosexual couples is contained in s.118C which provides that a man who commits or suffers to commit buggery with a man under the age of 21 is liable on conviction on indictment to imprisonment for life.
Hence, the age of consent between two males have been effectively equalized with that between a male and a female, which is 16.
A Saudi tourist saw pictures of a blonde European woman on a dating app and agreed to meet her in a hotel to have sex but ended up getting conned by a Nigerian trio instead.
A Nigerian woman welcomed him at the hotel and invited him to her room and told the man that he would be having sex with her, according to a report by Gulf News.
The specific activity engaged in or the gender of its participants can also be affected by the law.
The woman was found hiding on the roof above the reception.
The prosecutors accuse the suspects of molesting the Saudi and for stealing his money and wristwatch.
a person under the age of 16 cannot in law give any consent which would prevent an act being an assault for the purposes of indecent assault.
Hence, a woman who has sexual activity with a boy or a girl under 16 will be prosecuted under this section.
