Fighting between man’s two wives: Lashes set for 15

JEDDAH: A court in Jeddah has ruled that 15 people are to be lashed, including the husband of two women whose quarrel led relatives to intervene.
The fight started when the husband brought the second wife he had recently married to the house where his first wife lived.
The two wives got into conflict, which escalated into a melee when they called their families to intervene.
The first wife sued the husband, accusing him of having been violent, of having announced that he was divorcing her and of having thrown her and their son on the building’s staircase.
According to a medical report issued by the King Fahd Hospital for the wife, her femur had been broken during the incident, so she had to be taken to hospital and have surgery performed on her; it reportedly took her three months to recover.
Listening to the testimony of the husband, the two wives, and members of the women’s families, and viewing the medical reports, led the court to rule 20 lashes each for 14 members of the two families and 50 lashes for the husband.
Moreover, the judge also ruled that the husband has to pay SR80,000 for physical damages and assault to his first wife.
