A Filipino woman has gone on trial in Dubai for allegedly threatening to kill her Yemeni husband after posting pictures of his family members on social media sites and abusing him in a messenger system.
The 34-year-old, who was not named, told police she created the social media accounts and posted “private” pictures after having a dispute with her husband, Khaleej Times reported. According to court records she also insulted and threatened her husband on WhatsApp.
A complaint was filed by the 31-year-old husband after he was told by a friend that there were pages in his name on Instagram and Facebook. “I checked both accounts and saw there my family photos and my pictures. I found out later it was the defendant behind it,” he said in court.
Police said the incidents occurred in September and October and the woman was arrested on December 16.
The wife faces charges in Dubai Court of First Instance of making criminal threats, making verbal abuse and libeling and circulating others’ pictures without their consent via social media.
