Prosecutors requested the court to strictly punish her according to the law.

A Dubai expat, who allegedly posted pictures of her husband's family members online and then threatened to kill him, faced trial at the Dubai Court of First Instance on Sunday.

The 34-year-old Filipina defendant's alleged wrongdoings took place in September and October 2018. A complaint was lodged at Al Qusais police station.

She faced charges of making criminal threats, verbal abuse, libelling and circulating others' pictures without their consent via social media. 

Prosecutors requested the court to strictly punish her according to the law. 

Public prosecution records show she sent messages with abusive content to her husband via WhatsApp, Messenger and Snapchat. She also posted his family's photos on Instagram and Facebook.

The complainant, a 31-year-old Yemeni, said his friend brought to his attention in September last year 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 complained against her as she also verbally abused him in messages she sent via WhatsApp, Messenger and Snapchat.

The accused admitted to the public prosecution investigator that she had set up a Facebook page in the complainant's name. The woman confessed she posted pictures of herself and him, his father and his second wife. She also admitted she insulted and threatened to kill him.

As many as 36 conversation transcripts, relevant to the case, were used as prosecution evidence. 

The accused was arrested on December 16 last year.

A ruling will be issued on February 26.
