Another agreed with him on the same request, writing: “Every harasser deserves what happens to him, and he is supposed to be imprisoned for 5 or 10 years, whether the harasser is a girl or a young man.”
We have risen above every harassment, and I deserve it. It is not required to be imprisoned for five years or ten years in prison for any harassment by a girl or a man.

Another pointed out to the angle of filming and that it does not match the angle of the surveillance cameras, and wrote: “Representing the aggressors, hiding their faces and the angle of filming is not a place.”

A young man complains of harassment!
The Kingdom witnessed a similar incident a few days ago, when the pioneers of social networking sites transmitted a video clip of a young man revealing that he had been harassed by three men.
The young man also said in a group conversation on the “Club House” application that he was harassed by three young men, including two of his relatives, stressing that men are also subjected to harassment like girls.
The young man said: “For those who say that harassment is limited to girls only, I am a young man and three have harassed me, my uncle’s son, my maternal uncle and one of the neighbors, meaning that the harassment is not only for girls.

Amending the law to combat the crime of harassment
A few weeks ago, the agency reported:Official, that the Council of Ministers of the Kingdom held a meeting headed by the Saudi monarch, King Salman bin Abdulaziz. Where he approved a package of decisions, including adding a paragraph to Article VI of the law on combating the crime of harassment.
This paragraph states: “The judgment issued determining the penalties referred to in this article may include the text to publish its summary at the expense of the convicted person in one or more local newspapers. Or in any other appropriate way. This is according to the gravity of the crime and its impact on society. Provided that the publication after the judgment acquires the final character.
The anti-harassment system, which came into effect in 2018, also provides for severe penalties, including imprisonment for up to 5 years, and heavy fines for convicts. However, it did not include at the time articles that would allow defamation of harassers under any circumstances.
Following the issuance of the amendment, thousands of Twitter users in the Kingdom traded the hashtag “Anti-harassment crime system”. To climb very quickly to the top of the “most traded” in Saudi Arabia.
A large number of social media users welcomed this amendment, considering it a strong step to eliminate the phenomenon of harassment.
