A woman in Saudi Arabia caught her husband trying to kiss their maid, she recorded everything as an evidence, posted it on social media and she now stands the chance of going to jail. Catching her husband trying to flirt with their maid is enough to make her devastated not to mention the fact that she stands the chance of going to jail for defaming the husband, has added salt to the injury.
She observed the whole thing from another room, rather than confronting the husband while he was in the act, she filmed and the footage was posted to the social media with the caption. ‘The minimum punishment for this husband is to scandalise him.’ The video footage went viral in Saudi Arabia, their native country sparking a lot of reaction from the Saudis and in fact it was a hot trend on twitter with the hashtag #SaudiWomanCatchesHusbandCheating.
However and unfortunately for the woman, in accordance to the country’s defamation laws, she could be sent to jail for one year or pay asked to pay a fine of 500,000 Saudi Riyals (£87,031) for making her family issue public.
This law includes stiff punishment for anyone using mobile phones with a camera or other equipment to photograph others and defame them, Majid Qaroob, a top lawyer in Saudi, said. The video has generated a debate in the country currently. Some people are showering praises on her for summoning courage to make it public while some are chastising her for making her family issues public.
