Abused fathers in Saudi Arabia seek protection from children
A number of Saudi fathers have approached the courts to seek justice against their abusive children.
Many of these parents were subjected to either verbal abuse or thrown out of the house, the Arab News reported Sunday.
Around 30 men have sought protection from their abusive wards at various courts in Saudi Arabia.
According to a new Saudi criminal law, judges can issue the sentences they deem appropriate for ingratitude, verbal abuse and failing to provide financial or moral support, the report said.
The law effectively criminalises failure to visit parents, assault and any form of abuse.
Penalties for verbal abuse in the country vary from a warning to four months in prison.
Individuals found guilty of physically assaulting their parents can face a two-year prison sentence.
