A mother was fined Dh1,100 for assaulting her children, aged 8 and 10, with a phone charging cable.
The Fujairah Federal Court of First Instance fined her, whereas the Civil Court asked her to pay Dh20,000 as compensation to the father of the children.
The father had filed a police report stating that his children had been beaten by their mother.
He added that his 10-year-old son had bruises and scratches on his back, thighs and face. Whereas, his 8-year-old son had a bruise on his left thigh, abrasions on the right thigh and redness on his left leg.
The woman confessed to the accusations and said that she hit them with the cable to encourage them to study. She said that she would not repeat this again.
The father had also filed a counter civil lawsuit against the woman demanding that she pay Dh49,000 in compensation for the material, moral and psychological damages suffered by him and his two sons as a result of the defendant’s beatings.
He said the mother beat his sons without any mercy or pity, and caused them injuries. The boys spent days receiving treatment and had missed out on school, said the father.
After looking into the case, the civil court judge issued a ruling instructing the Emirati woman to pay Dh20,000 to the father (guardian for the minors) in compensation for the damages.
