Woman in SR2.3m extortion over naked pic

A woman tried to extort money from a rich Saudi man by demanding SR2.3 million or she would publicise a photograph of his naked body, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.

Instead of paying her, the man, in his 50s, reported the woman to the feared Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice.

Sabq Arabic language daily said Commission members told the man to go along with the unidentified woman and pretend that he accepted her demand.

“He went to an agreed meeting and handed her the money. Once she opened the bag to count the money, Commission members jumped and arrested her,” it said in a report from the eastern Saudi province of Ihsa.
