Gulf man sues dad on ‘defamation’ charges

He also accuses him of splitting him from wife

A Saudi man took his father to court, accusing him of defaming him and causing a divorce with his wife, a newspaper reported on Sunday.

The unnamed son told court in the Western Saudi town of Makkah that his father kept calling his friends at work to warn them to keep away from his son on the grounds he is a “loser and a bad person,” the Arabic language daily Almadina said

“He also accused his father of forcing his wife not to speak to her son and that he also caused a divorce with his wife,” the paper added.
