Saudi judge accused of mistreating ex-wife

By Staff

A Saudi woman has filed a court suit against a judge accusing him of mistreating her before the two were divorced, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.

The woman also reported the judge’s mother and brother to the police after they tried to hit her daughter with their car in a bid to abduct her.

‘Al Watan’ daily said the court in the western Saudi Red Sea port of Jeddah sentenced the judge’s mother to 14 days in jail and his brother to 20 days but refrained from trying the judge on the grounds he enjoys immunity.

“The woman then filed a suit asking the court to have the immunity lifted from the judge but her plea was rejected,” the paper said.
