According to Emarat Al Youm, the husband admitted to destroying some of the wife’s belongings. However, he denied seizing his wife's belongings; he claimed he put them in bags and left them with one of the wife’s relatives.

Witnesses confirmed the husband’s story and also confirmed that he offered to give his wife her clothes and belongings, but she refused and insisted on asking for its value in kind.

After considering the evidence, the court ruled that damages were limited to the glasses, as per the findings of the investigation.

It noted that damages suffered by the wife were a direct result of the husband's negative behaviour and ordered him to pay her Dh5,000 as compensation.
