Sharjah police comes to the aid of domestic abuse victim


Police in Sharjah have been quick to respond to a woman’s appeal for help on social media.

She posted a video seeking protection from her abusive husband, and he was later questioned.

Officials say the case was swiftly dealt with, but they’ve urged people not to share such clips because of the sensitivities involved.

Earlier this week, the UAE cabinet approved a new family protection policy aimed at tackling domestic violence.
