Emirates after she ‘breached her husband’s privacy by checking his cell
phone to see if he was cheating on her.
The unnamed Arab expatriate was fined 150,000 dirhams ($40,843) by the
criminal court in the emirate of Ajman, the English-language newspaper
Gulf News said.
Her lawyer told the paper she had accused her husband of having an
affair. She admitted she had accessed his phone without his permission
and transferred photos to her device, the lawyer added.
The husband lodged a complaint with the court, which convicted her last
week under a cybercrime law that penalizes “the invasion of privacy of
another person” using information technology, the paper said.
It said the couple were in their 30s but gave no other information.
