A court in the UAE jailed a woman for three months for looking through her husband’s phone without his knowledge.
The woman’s husband filed a lawsuit against her, accusing her of violating his privacy, and she was put on trial.
She was found guilty.
In his statement made against her, the man said his wife went through his phone and copied all the data to another device in order to search through the information at a later date, shares Daily Mail.
The husband made the complaint after his wife was said to have scrolled through his phone contents while he was asleep.
She was said to have then transferred pictures and chats to her phone to show her siblings.
She claimed her husband had given her his password and allowed her to look at his phone since she had caught him chatting with other women before.
The UAE’s has strict cybercrime laws, especially when it comes to protecting the privacy of individuals online. Even in married couples it is still an offence for either husband or wife to search each other’s phone, even if one suspects their spouse of cheating.
Sounds like he had something to hide!
