Ya see? If the women weren’t forced to wear Burquas, he’d have known.
The envoy had only met the woman a few times, during which she had hidden her face behind a niqab, the Gulf News reported.
After the marriage contract was signed, the ambassador attempted to kiss his bride-to-be. It was only then that he discovered her facial hair and eyes.
The ambassador told an Islamic Sharia court in the United Arab Emirates he was tricked into the marriage as the woman’s mother had shown his own mother pictures of her sister instead of his bride-to-be.
He sued for the contract to be annulled and also demanded the woman pay him 500,000 dirhams (£85,000) for clothes, jewelry and other gifts he had bought for her.
The court annulled the contract but rejected the ambassador’s demand for compensation.
The report did not identify the ambassador.
Too bad he’s not identified. I can think of all kinds of snarky things to send him.
