Saudi Arabia women face jail and flogging for checking husband’s phone without his permission

The offence would be prosecuted as a violation of privacy because it is not covered in the country’s Islamic laws, senior lawyer Mohammad al-Temyat, a member of the Saudi government’s Family Security Program, has said, adding that women can be brought before a court if a lawsuit is filed against them.

His words: “I would like to clarify that this subject involves the husband and the wife and it is a Ta’zir offence so it is possible that there would be a flogging, a fine, imprisonment, just signing a pledge or even nothing. The punishment is dependent on the damage caused from it.”
