Court Orders Man to Pay AED 20,000 to Woman For Accusing Her of Seducing Men

The plaintiff stated that she received a message from the young man’s phone accusing her of seducing several men at a time and that a criminal judgment against him had been made, with a fine attached.

After the ruling, she accused the guy of insulting her and requested the court for compensation for any losses she had incurred.

The defendant asked for the case to be dismissed, alleging that the complainant was attempting to have him indicted in order to negotiate a debt of AED 39,000 that she owed him and that a verdict had been given in this regard requiring that the money be returned to him.

The defendant had been convicted in a criminal case for insulting the plaintiff, according to evidence, and the unlawful act in question was the one on which the plaintiff based her complaint.

The plaintiff’s feelings and reputation were harmed as a result of the incident, according to the court. As a result, the young man was compelled to pay her AED 20,000 in addition to court fees and costs.
