The prominent Lebanese media and Al-Jazeera anchor, Ghada Owais, returned to comment on the hacking of her phone and spying on her by the Saudi regime among a number of media professionals and opponents of the regime of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
Ghada Owais, in a tweet to her through her official Twitter account, published a picture of a message she received from a Saudi number, describing it as the least obscene sample that she can publish from the Saudi numbers she receives.
The least obscene sample that I dare to publish from what Saudi numbers send me
After purchasing spyware, they used to send daily sexual pictures, and before that, the Assad regime practiced the same dirt on me.
Public opinion must understand why the lawsuit was filed and how much female journalists suffer from the filth of the corrupt and patriarchal regimes that are puppets of Israel pic.twitter.com/FZhfjj1T2d

Ghada Owais exposes Saudi Arabia
Owais concluded her tweet, revealing why she is suing the Saudi and UAE regimes: “Public opinion must understand why the lawsuit was filed and how much female journalists suffer from the filth of the corrupt and patriarchal regimes that are agents of Israel.”
Ghada had previously said that she was a “victim of spyware”, revealing that private photos of her had been stolen from her mobile phone and used to discredit her through social media and the press.
I am a victim of spyware. My photos were stolen&used to smear me across social media and the press. No one should have to go through this. No journalist, activist, academic or citizen should feel unsafe just for owning a phone. We need to fight for the right to privacy#Ghada_Owais pic.twitter.com/18zc0DpU41

Ghada Owais is suing Ibn Salman and Ibn Zayed
On December 10, 2020, Owais filed a lawsuit against “Bin Salman” in a US court in Florida.
Ghada said in her lawsuit that she accuses the Saudi Crown Prince and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Zayed, of being behind the incident of hacking her phone, and publishing personal photos of her about six months ago.

Ghada Owais commented by saying that “Bin Salman” thought that the policy of debt buying and intimidation could succeed, but that was wrong, continuing by saying: “They believed that they could not be held accountable, and that they could continue their tyrannical vows.”
A few days later, Owais published pictures of the judicial summons against the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Muhammad bin Salman, and the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Muhammad bin Zayed, in the case she filed against them in an American court.

The Al Jazeera anchor said that she was targeted because she presented reports critical of Saudi Arabia, which is a very clear message to journalists across the Middle East.
She mentioned the lawsuits filed against bin Salman, especially by Khadija Genghis, the fiancée of the late Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi, in addition to the lawsuit of the former Saudi intelligence officer Saad al-Jabri.
