An Emirati man was sentenced to two months in jail after calling a woman ‘stupid’ over WhatsApp.
The defendant had no previous convictions so the prison term was suspended for three years, but he was fined 20,000 dirhams – £4,000 – for violating United Arab Emirates cybercrime laws.
He said he had proposed to the woman as they were getting to know each other online and ‘spontaneously’ sent the messages without meaning to offend her, English-speaking Arab news site Stepfeed reported.
