A doctor has sued a WhatsApp group admin after he became fed up with ‘annoying messages wasting my time’. The medic, based in Saudi Arabia, filed a lawsuit against the individual complaining that he was being sent ‘useless’ messages.
He found out he had been added to the forum on returning from Hajj, an annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca, according to local media.
The unnamed man is quoted as saying: ‘They kept sending useless, annoying messages and wasted my time.’
He is said to have made the complaint after tracking what had been sent through to him during a 24 hour period.
However, legal experts in the country have warned that the case could end up being dismissed, StepFeed reports.
‘If he doesn’t prove he suffered anything negative because he was added to the WhatsApp group, a judge might dismiss the case,’ Saudi lawyer Khaled Abou Rashed told Okaz newspaper.
According to StepFeed, the reaction to his complaint has been mixed among social media users in Saudi Arabia.
