Woman Banished From Her Country For Checking Her Husband's Phone Over Suspicions Of Infidelity

The United Arab Emirates would apparently rather deport women and take their money than let them stand up to cheating husbands. An expatriate living there learned that lesson the hard way, when a UAE court fined her $41,000 and banished her from the country, local media reportedHer crime? She checked her husband’s cellphone after growing suspicious of infidelity, found photo evidence, and accused him of having an affair.

Her husband responded by lodging a complaint with a court in the Ajman emirate, stating that his wife had transferred photos on his mobile phone to hers without permission. She admitted to the deed. Her lawyer said the couple are in their 30s and Arab immigrants - foreign workers account for some 88 percent of the UAE’s total population.

The court then sentenced the woman under a privacy protection law, which is ironic given that the Emirati government - though more moderate than some of its neighbors - pries into the phones of private citizens and sometimes foreign journalists. The government has even blocked the use of secure messaging systems on Blackberry smartphones because it can’t hack into them.

Men and women face death by stoning if found guilty of cheating in the UAE. The UAE embassy in Washington did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Foreign Policy.
