A Saudi woman is facing jail time after she caught her husband on camera cheating on her with their maid and posted the footage on social media.
According to Daily Mail, the woman caught her husband groping their maid and forcing himself on her on a hidden camera. Despite the fact that the husband is clearly in the wrong, it could be the wife who is punished for this…
The video shows the husband talking to the maid as a second maid walks around the kitchen. He then kisses the first maid and turns his back to the camera as she tries to get away from him. His wife uploaded the video to social media along with the caption, “the minimum punishment for this husband is to scandalize him.”
The video has quickly gone viral, but Saudi officials have warned that the consequences for the woman could be dire.
“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,” prominent lawyer Majid Qaroob told the press. “This law includes stiff punishment for anyone using mobilephones with camera or other equipment to photograph others and defame them.”
