Saudi police arrested a local man for locking up his wife and seven children for six months and for his daily torture of the woman, including urinating on her naked body every night, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.
Neighbors discovered the imprisoned wife and seven kids inside a room rented by her husband away from his villa in punishment for her attempt to call a TV channel to reveal her ordeal, Kabar Arabic language daily said.
The Saudi woman, identified as Umm Fahd, told police she and her little children had been locked up in a small house including one room and a toilet since Ramadan last year.
“We have lived on little food since we were imprisoned by this cruel husband…how could he do this to his own children,” she said.
“I have suffered from his sadist practices for 20 years…in the morning he starts the day with swearing then beating me…at night, he practices his sadist sexual ways on me and when he is done, he urinate on my body.”
Kabar did not mention where this family lives in Saudi Arabia but said the unnamed husband earns SR30,000 ($8,100) a month from his job at a major local firm and that he has nine other children from his first wife.
