According to Emarat Al Youm, the husband filed a lawsuit demanding compensation for the damage he sustained as a result of his wife’s actions, after she sent his pictures to his family and insulted him.

The husband claimed he lost his salary due to absence from work to pursue the case and had to shell out for attorney fees too. He also stated that the case had caused him psychological damage.

The wife's attorney stated that the husband abused his client verbally and expelled her from their marital home, leaving her and their daughter without support.

The court stated that evidence proved the wife violated the privacy of her husband by spying on his phone, sharing pictures and recordings and insulting him through a means of communication. Evidence also proved that the husband incurred expenses and deserved financial compensation.
