Dubai is notorious for its strict laws. Unlike in the Western world, it’s illegal to be drunk in public there. So it only stands to reason that British lawyer twins Alena and Sasha Parker, 37, from London, found themselves in trouble for behaving outrageously on a night out.
The pair are now facing a trial which could see them spend up to three years behind bars for allegedly assaulting a policewoman and “cursing Arab women” on a night out in August 2017, which resulted in them being arrested for “roguish behavior”, a court heard on Monday.

Prior to this incident, the twins had flaunted their lavish Dubai lifestyle on social media.
Alena Parker, an associate at Al Safar & Partners, and her sister Sasha, the law firm’s case manager, were been found drunk in the Al Barsha district.
“A police patrol dispatched to the location found the two intoxicated British [legal] advocates were behaving outrageously,” police records revealed.
