A Bahraini man was left to clear his then wife’s debt after he mortgaged his house to enable her to obtain a BD 60,000 loan. Within a few months, the couple got divorced following a disagreement.
Following the divorce, the woman did not pay the monthly instalments, forcing the bank to approach her ex-husband, who had no other option but to sell the property to avoid being jailed.
The man then filed a complaint against his divorcee, demanding the court to take action. The court ruled in the man’s favour, ordering the woman to pay BD53,000.
