A man returned home in Abu Dhabi to relax away from work only to find his four wives locked in a heated argument. His decision to end the fight was so decisive that he divorced three of them and beat up the fourth.
The court was equally decisive when it sentenced him to one month in prison and fined him Dh2,000. He then appealed for mercy, a chance he had not given to his wives but the appeals court upheld the earlier verdict.
“He hit them then divorced three. He again hit the fourth wife but it was not clear why he kept that specific one,” the semi-official daily Alittihad said without identifying the husband.
The man is said to have found all the wives fighting in one single room.
Of the four, one wife has filed a police complaint against the man. She alleged that she was beaten the most and was even hit against the wall.
