Filipina on Trial for Making Criminal Threats & Other Charges

Reportedly, the defendant committed the wrongdoings last year, during the months of September and October. Her husband, a 31-year-old Yemeni national, filed a complaint against her at Al Qusais police station, Khaleej Times reported.

According to the complainant, a friend told him about Facebook and Instagram pages that had been created using his name. Sure enough, when he checked the accounts, he saw pictures of himself and his family, posted and shared online without their permission.

Later, he discovered that the defendant was behind the fake accounts. He also complained that she had sent him abusive messages via Messenger, Snapchat, and WhatsApp.

The defendant was arrested last year, on December 16. Meanwhile, a ruling for the case is set to be issued on February 26.
