A Saudi gets 40 lashes for abusing his ex-wife on WhatsApp

A Saudi man went on to WhatsApp to abuse his ex-wife

It is reported that the ex-husband had sent almost 600 messages with abusive content. The messages tend to harm the honor and modesty of the victim. The language used in the messages was dirty and highly abusive.

The couple had already separated ways yet they still have a conflict over the custody of their three children. The right of custody was the matter that provoked a fight between the two and the ex-husband went on to abuse the woman via WhatsApp messages.

The court decision

The case was taken to the court by the woman and the court thereby sentenced the ex-husband with a punishment of 40 lashes. The court also gave the ex-wife an option to attend the punishment.

The court has now also made the man sign an apology letter and take a vow of not misbehaving with his ex-wife.
