A woman from a GCC country was severely beaten-up and threatened to be killed by her husband because she asked him about the reason of using his mobile phone secretly after midnight.
The woman filed a complaint with the police against her husband, who was summoned and interrogated, before the case was referred to the Public Prosecution and then to the Court of Misdemeanors in Dubai.
The Court sentenced the defendant to one year in jail.
The defendant husband appealed against the judgment, which led the Court of Appeal to commute the ruling to one month in jail.
In the case, which dates back to last January, the woman presented a medical report, proving that she had been beaten-up by her husband, who caused her wounds that impeded her from performing her personal needs for a period of more that 21 days.
She sustained permanent disabilities of 5 per cent in the right foot and 1 per cent in the left knee, according to the medial report.
