In my column in The National newspaper, I answer a reader who has recorded her husband's alleged girlfriend admitting to an extramarital relationship and wants to know whether she can submit this recording as evidence. I explain to the reader, who also found her husband at a nightclub with the same women, that while it is illegal to take such action, it will be up to the courts to decide whether to admit this evidence as part of any adultery case against her husband and his mistress.

I explain that if the pair are found guilty the sentence they are given is at the court's discretion, but it is likely that the court will issue a sentence of at least a year, followed by deportation.
