A woman can be jailed for posting a video on the Internet, showing her husband sexually assaulting a woman.
The woman of Saudi Arabia, is facing up to one year in jail for posting the video of her husband forcibly kissing and groping their maid in the kitchen.
The unidentified woman, who suspected her husband of cheating, secretly recorded him with a cellphone.
She then posted the video to social media sites and wrote: “The minimum punishment for this husband is to scandalize him.” The video went viral.
However, a lawyer said that the woman could now be jailed for up to one year for defamation.
She faces up to a year in prison or a fine of SR500,000 (about $133,000) for defaming her husband.
This law includes harsh penalties for anyone using electronic devices to defame others.
