This story must be interesting and instructive for all expatriates in Saudi Arabia. We have already written that Facebook and Twitter are monitored in KSA, and today we want to ask you be very careful talking via messagers like Whatsapp or Viber.

Please think twice before writing something about Saudi Arabia in social media or on some forums because all your posts can be monitored.

Do not write anything against Islam, against government and, of course, porn and gambling related messages are strictly prohibited.

Below is the real story from one person who was deported from Saudi Arabia for sending porn pictures via Internet.

Real story from Deported Man

“I was deported from KSA very recently March 9, 2015 after I was jailed for 1 month, because I was arrested by Muttawas as I was chatting on the social media with an Arab gay and tried to meet the person. I had finger prints in the police  station and one policeman told me that I will be banned in all Gulf countries for five years.
Arab gay in mobile application called whatsapp from a long time. He said he wants to meet me, I refused many times but he insisted to meet me. When it continued for a long time, I finally accepted to meet him because he was insisting so much. When I went to the meeting place in the street he called me in my mobile and while I was talking to him, 2 muttawas came from my back and arrested me. They brought me to the police station. After 2 weeks in jail they
told me that I will be deported to Philippines. I was detained in the police station for 1 month and 1 week then my kafeel came and released me and deported me after 5 days.

While inside the jail I found out that the person I was chatting is the muttawa, he changed his voice to deceive me. There were many saudis inside the jail who were arrested in the same manner that I was arrested but we were chatting in different apps (whatsapp, badoo, who’s here, twitter, instagram). I sent him some adult jokes, porn clips
and pics which they used against me.

My suggestion

to general public and my fellow expatriates is stop using any social media and meet up any anonymous person from the internet. My boss told me that I was terminated by the company because I am gay based on the police report.”

I do understand that Islam disallows such things but, on my opinion, every person must decide this by himself, especially if he is expat in the country.

Everybody must respect country’s laws, but the laws must respect human rights.
