A male Gulf national was recently convicted of stalking a Bahraini actress for almost six years. He was sentenced by the Fifth Lower Criminal Court to three months imprisonment and deportation without re-entry after the execution of the punishment.
The details of the incident date back to six years ago, when the defendant met the actress during a theatrical performance. He began messaging her via mobile phone and through social media networks.
Court files showed that the man’s comments on social media sites caused problems for the actress; and then, he started communicating with her family members. It was also shown that this matter continued until it got to the point of him chasing her to the workplace, where she was shocked to see him waiting. She sought help from bystanders, and he was captured and handed over to the police.
