Dubai: A maid has been accused of spiking Coca-Cola with Panadol and taking pills to terminate a pregnancy after she had unmarried sex with her boyfriend.

Dubai International Airport’s paramedic teams rushed the 30-year-old Filipina maid, J.B., to hospital after she collapsed in pain and bled profusely due to the illegal abortion she attempted shortly before boarding a plane for her country in January.

Prosecutors charged the Filipina with having unmarried sex with her countryman, J., who left the UAE a few months back, and trying to get rid of the foetus after taking banned abortion pills.

J.B. entered a guilty plea and confessed that she tried to carry out the abortion herself when she appeared before the Dubai Court of First Instance on Sunday.

“Yes, I had consensual sex with J., who impregnated me. I also took abortion pills,” the Filipina told presiding judge Fahd Al Shamsi.

After she recovered from the operation she claimed to police interrogators that she met J. in July 2014 and they had a love affair, according to records.

“We had sex several times. On the day of the incident, I went to the airport with my sponsor who had cancelled my residency and wanted me to go back home. A week before I collapsed at the airport, I purchased two abortion pills from M. for Dh400 after I met him in a mall. I took Panadol and Coca- Cola and used the abortion pills,” she claimed.
