The Dubai Court of Appeal upheld a lower court’s ruling which sentenced a man to three months in prison for blackmailing his ex-wife.

The victim received Facebook messages from an anonymous user in October. The anonymous message demanded $10,000 from her and threatened to publish inappropriate pictures of her.

The woman said the mysterious account holder sent her images and videos on Facebook and WhatsApp. She discovered that the person blackmailing her was her ex-husband.

The police force investigated the case, and the man confessed his crime. His phone was confiscated, and he was sentenced to prison for three months. He will be deported from the country after serving his sentence. BKM/ Expat Media
