People convicted of sexual harassment face up to two years in prison and a fine of up to $27,000.

A Saudi court ruled, for the first time in the kingdom’s history, to defame a man convicted of sexual harassment, local media reported.

The Criminal Court in Medina convicted Yasser Laroui of harassing a woman using obscene language.

He was sentenced to eight months in prison and paid a fine of $1,330.

The anti-harassment law was amended a year ago to allow for the publication of the names of harassers and the sentences issued against them in local newspapers at their own expense.
