“I do not use drugs but my wife used to put drugs in my coffee and tea,” he claimed. “My wife is evil, she sells hashish and wants me to be addicted also. He is reported as saying !
A MAN who went to a police station to snitch on his ‘evil’ wife for selling drugs ended up receiving a suspended 12 month sentence for using narcotics.
The 34-year-old Bahraini was found guilty of using crystal meth, locally known as shabu, by the High Criminal Court.
He was apprehended after he went to a police station in Manama in July to report that his wife was allegedly selling hashish along with another person.
However, officers suspected the man was under the influence due to his ‘abnormal behaviour’ and a subsequent blood test revealed he had used shabu.
His wife was not implicated due to a lack of evidence, the court heard.
The defendant said that his wife had placed the narcotics in his drinks and denied being a user.
“I do not use drugs but my wife used to put drugs in my coffee and tea,” he claimed. “My wife is evil, she sells hashish and wants me to be addicted also.
“I found out that she was selling drugs and I could not believe it. Now I have also found out that she was placing drugs in my drinks.”
The defendant received a 12-month suspended sentence. If he commits any crime within a one-year period he will be jailed for the offence.
Defence lawyer Bushra Mayouf claimed that his client suffered from mental illnesses and used medication that contained shabu.
“My client denied using drugs but he used to take medication from the Psychiatrist Hospital which contained shabu,” she said. “In addition he said his wife placed the drugs in his drinks. Why would he use drugs and go file a complaint against his wife for selling them?”
