In Saudi Arabia, prosecutors have objected to a 10-month imprisonment sentence for a man accused of sexual harassment. The lesser sentence also included a fine of 5,000 riyals, $1,333. According to Saudi News, last week, the Kingdom’s public prosecution rejected the sentence, which was caught on camera.
The man was arrested in May for spitting at the victim whilst she was in her car and exposing himself to her, in the early hours before Suhoor.

The accused is now facing the maximum punishment of two years imprisonment, as well as a fine of 100,000 riyals, $26,663.
This is a step in the right direction for sexual harassment cases in the Kingdom
