Michelle Palmer and Vince Acors are currently on bail in Dubai
Two Britons found guilty of having sex on a Dubai beach have had an appeal against their convictions adjourned.
Michelle Palmer, 36, of Oakham, Rutland, and Vince Acors, 34, of Bromley, south-east London, have made their case at Dubai's Court of Appeal.
They are on bail after being sentenced in October to three months in prison after they were caught on 5 July and fined for being drunk in public.
Their lawyer said a judge will make a decision on the appeal next Tuesday.
Prosecutors have also appeared in court to argue that the couple's sentences should be increased.
The pair's lawyer, Hassan Matter, said: "I made a good appeal and submitted a good defence today. Michelle and Vince are innocent.
"The prosecution appealed in the same hearing today. They say the punishment needs to be bigger. They say it was a very small sentence."
Palmer and Acors were found guilty of unmarried sex and public indecency at Dubai's Court of First Instance.
As well as a prison term, they were fined 1,000 dirhams (£160; $350) and issued with deportation orders.
The pair were arrested on Jumeirah Beach hours after meeting at a champagne brunch.
Palmer was sacked from her job in Dubai as a publishing executive after her arrest. Acors was visiting the emirate on holiday.
