share on:

A court in Saudi Arabia has sentenced a woman to 70 lashes and a fine of 20,000 Saudi Riyals (SR) for insulting a man on instant-messaging application WhatsApp.

The court ruled the 32-year-old guilty of tarnishing the reputation of the plaintiff on WhatsApp.

Sadly for her, Article Three of the Saudi Anti-Cyber Crime Law states that whoever defames or inflicts damage upon others through various information technology devices “shall be subject to imprisonment for a period not exceeding one year and a fine not exceeding SR500,000 or to either punishment.”
