Bizarre! Saudi man sexually assaults maid, wife faces jail

Dubai: A woman catching her husband cheating on her would normally bring trouble for the man. However, in a bizarre case, a woman in Saudi Arabia is now facing jail for doing the same.

As per reports in the international media, the Saudi woman recorded a video of her husband attempting to molest a family maid and posted the same on social media.

The video was filmed using a hidden camera and clearly shows the man to be at fault.

However, it is the woman who is now facing a jail term.

As per The Daily Mail, the video which was uploaded on YouTube shows the Saudi man forcing himself on one of the family's members of staff. The maid is seen trying to resist his advances.

While the man is seen talking to the maid, another woman, also believed to be a maid, is seen walking around in the kitchen.

The man then kisses the maid while she is attempting to escape his clutches.

The enraged wife uploaded the video online and wrote, 'The minimum punishment for this husband is to scandalise him.”

While the video went viral on social media in Saudi Arabia, it has attracted a lot of trouble for the woman.

She now faces a year's jail term or a fine of SR500,000 (£87,214) for defaming her husband.

“She faces up to one year in prison or a fine of SR500,000 (£87,214) for defaming her husband in line with the law on information technology crimes,” lawyer Majid Qaroob told a local newspaper.

“This law includes stiff punishment for anyone using mobile phones with camera or other equipment to photograph others and defame them,” he said.
