A school principal spits in a teacher's face, pulls his beard and threatens him.. and the penalty is 10 days in prison

The General Court of Rabigh Governorate, in the Makkah region of Saudi Arabia, closed the curtain on the incident of a teacher who filed a complaint accusing a school principal of spitting on him and pulling his beard in a room in the same school and threatening him.

According to the Saudi website, Sabq, the General Court of Rabigh Governorate sentenced the school principal to ten days in prison, and the ruling gained final status with the support of the Appeals Court in Makkah Al Mukarramah region.

Last February, the General Court of Rabigh had received a complaint referred from the Public Prosecution by a teacher working in a school in Rabigh Governorate at the time, complaining to the principal of the school in which he worked, accusing him of being spat and pulling his beard at the hands of the principal of the same school and closing one of the rooms and threatened him the next day.

At that time, the court sentenced the school principal to apologize, while the aggrieved teacher objected and appealed the apology ruling and rescinded it. The court finally sentenced the defendant, “the principal of the school,” to ten days in prison.

For his part, the aggrieved teacher demanded that the Ministry of Education inflict the punishment prescribed by law for Article 9 of the Code of Employment Conduct, which stipulates not to do any act that violates the values, customs or norms of society.
