UAE man fined AED10,000 for WhatsApp insult

The Al Ain Court of Appeal has ruled that a man who sent an insult via a WhatsApp voice note has to pay a fine of AED10,000.

They upheld the original judgement by the Court of First Instance. But they did reject the request from the plaintiff to increase the compensation amount.

The court reports show that the plaintiff filed a lawsuit that he’d been insulted by a ‘defamatory’ audio clip on WhatsApp. The phrase used was “Shame on your upbringing”.

The court ruled that he was due AED10,000 for compensation for damages as a result of the WhatsApp insult.

The moral of this story is don’t send insults via WhatsApp. Eek!
