By Bukola Olasanmi
An Abu Dhabi man has sued his former wife, over allegations that she was insulting him on Facebook.
The woman is facing charges of defamation and violating cyber laws at the Abu Dhabi Misdemeanour Court in Saudi Arabia. The man has demanded Dh21,000 ($5717) in temporary damages from the accused.
While filing his case before the court, the man, who wasn’t named, complained that his ex-wife wrote in a Facebook post that he caused the death of their son, a few years ago through negligence. He said that in another post, the woman accused him of being involved in witchcraft activities.
The man, who is a teacher, told the court that given his social standing, the posts were insulting and undermining him.
“The comments my ex-wife posted on social media damaged my reputation in the eyes of the public including hundreds of my students, bosses and friends,” said the Arab man.
