‘Adultery’ case thrown out

A COURT kicked out a case of a Bahraini man who alleged the daughter he had raised as his own was actually fathered by another man.

The 34-year-old kicked his Bahraini wife out of the house after accusing her of adultery.

He has now lodged a formal complaint against her in the Sharia Court and requested it to strip the girl of the surname in official documents.

However, the court rejected his request and also denied him a DNA test.

“He said his wife was cheating on him and that their six-month-old daughter was fathered by another man,” lawyer Huda Al Shaer, representing the woman, told the GDN.

“He filed a complaint at the Sunni Sharia Court and requested a DNA test.

“However, the woman said that her husband had the habit of doubting others.

“He did not allow her to leave his family home without his permission and she did not even have a vehicle.

“Therefore, the court found out that the woman gave birth to the child while she was always at the house with her husband and could not have had sex behind his back.

“His parents were always present in the house and she never went out without his knowledge.

“He registered his daughter under his surname but after several months filed a complaint against his wife.

“He has also requested his wife to return to his family home.

“This means that she did not cheat on him; otherwise, he would not ask her to come and live with him again.”
