Saudi Woman to Receive 50 Lashes for Swearing in Text Message
A Saudi court sentenced a local woman to 50 lashes for swearing at her friend, following an argument, a newspaper reported on Monday.
The two Saudi women, aged 33 and 31 years, had decided to go out with their children for a weekend night but differed on where to go.
“An argument ensued and the two women decided to split … one of them later sent a text to her friend’s mobile phone swearing at her,” the Arabic language quotidian Kabar reported.
“The other woman went to court and showed the judge the message … although that woman said she was joking, the court ordered her lashed 50 times.”
Kabar said the court has given the convicted and sentenced woman the right to appeal.
