The Sharjah Misdemeanours Court looked into the case of two Arab girls, one of them charged with insult and humiliation.

According to the case papers, one of the girls sent an email to her colleague at a real estate company in Sharjah containing the word "Rude."

The victim told the court that a misunderstanding occurred between her and her colleague, after which the latter sent an e-mail containing offensive statements.

The court confronted the suspect with the charge which she denied saying she did not mean to insult her colleague.

The plaintiff and the suspect presented a legal translation by an accredited office of the Ministry of Justice clarifying the exact meaning of the word "Rude" in Arabic.

The plaintiff refused to waive the case in return for an apology email by the suspect.

She said she lost her job due to the incident, which caused her psychological and material damage.

The Public Prosecution requested the reference of the email to the translation section of the public prosecution or the Ministry of Justice to give the exact meaning of the word "Rude."
