Social media pioneers circulated a clip of a girl’s screaming from inside a house in Jizan, and stated that her father was abusing and beating her, asking her not to scream or make any sound.
The Center for Domestic Violence Reports of the Ministry of Social Affairs interacted with the hashtag “Violent of the Season” in the Jazan region, whose voice appeared in a video clip circulating screaming, after she was subjected to violence at the hands of her father.

Tweeters launched a hashtag on “Twitter” under the title “The Season’s Punisher”, asking the concerned authorities to verify the authenticity of the clip and work to save the girl.
It is worth noting that the Public Prosecution has noted that the system of protection from abuse enhances a set of guarantees to eliminate cases of violence against women, and establishes a package of penal procedures and penalties that are firm and strict against any transgressions in this regard.
It indicated that every form of violence perpetrated by a person towards a woman is prohibited, thus exceeding the limits of his jurisdiction, authority or responsibility, or because of the family relationship, dependency relationship, sponsorship, guardianship or livelihood dependency that binds them.
And it warned against forms of violence against women, or physical or psychological abuse or threats, threatening its perpetrators with imprisonment for a period of no less than a month and up to a year, and a fine of no less than 5,000 and up to 50,000 riyals, and in case of return, the penalty would be doubled.
