The court ruled that the wife violated the privacy of her husband by spying on his phone, transferring his photos and recordings, and sharing them with his family in order to distort his image.
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.
However, the court rejected the husband’s claim of losing his salary because he was following up with the case.
Based on the evidence, the court ordered the wife to pay Dh5,431 as compensation to her husband, in addition to legal fees and expenses.
