According to the police investigation, the woman published pictures of conversations between her and her husband and his phone on Instagram last January. As a result, the husband lodged a complaint at Bur Dubai police station and filed a lawsuit against her at Public Prosecution, which referred the case to the Misdemeanor Court.
The husband accused his wife of violating his privacy; the wife denied the accusation against her before the court, noting that she was in her apartment and communicated by phone via an app to chat with her husband's sisters with the aim of reaching a solution to their alimony problems.
She admitted that she put pictures of her children on the Instagram platform, in addition to text conversations with her husband, not thinking that this opened her up to prosecution.
After examining the case, the misdemeanour court imposed a fine of Dh2,000 against the wife, while the prosecution appealed the ruling before the Court of Appeal, calling for a stiffer penalty.
