Maldivian, police acting on a tip, arrested two men, aged 56 and 27, in their shared private home on Saturday under suspicions of “homosexual activity,” signaling renewed efforts to crack down on gay couples.

The Dhaandhoo couple will likely face severe punishments in the Islamic country, where “homosexual activity” is punishable by death under Sharia law provisions.

According to Gay Star News, other potentialities could include deportation, house arrest, whippings, and incarceration for up to six years. In light of the arrest, LGBT tourists are not advised to visit the tropical nation.
