Citizen imprisoned for having illicit relations with Ethiopian maid
A 30-year-old man in Qatif has been sentenced to six months in prison and 90 lashes for having illicit relations with a Ethiopian housemaid.
The defendant was given 30 days to appeal to the ruling.
The maid’s sponsor felt the presence of a stranger in her room at dawn, but was unable to catch him because he pushed past her and fled.
The sponsor said the man tried to apologize the next day, but the sponsor refused his apologies and filed a complaint with the police. Qatif police have referred the case to the Bureau of Investigation and Public Prosecution.
The defendant denied having illegal relations with the maid, saying he only talked to her on the phone and claiming that she always hit on him.
