The complainant had lodged a case against her ex-husband

An Arab man has been ordered to pay Dh40,000 as compensation to his ex-wife for sending her indecent messages.

The Ras Al Khaimah appellate court issued the ruling after the man challenged the verdict of the court of first instance to pay Dh70,000 to his ex-wife, the complainant, for moral and material damages.

The complainant had lodged a case against her ex-husband accusing him of sending her messages that bordered on obscenity.

The woman said that her ex-husband's messages rattled her because she is now married to another man and has children, the Emarat Al Youm daily reported.
