jodiAbu Dhabi - Abu Dhabi officials threw Austrailian Jodi Magi in jail for posting a picture of a parked car online, Australia’s ABC News reports.

It started in February when Magi, annoyed at a driver who took up two handicap-parking spaces in her apartment’s lot, posted a photo (since removed, per the Sydney Morning Herald) of the car on Facebook.

The 39-year-old didn’t include any identifying elements in the photo, the ABC notes—but the next thing she knew, a complaint was filed and she was in an Abu Dhabi courtroom, where she was found guilty under a UAE cybercrime law of “writing bad words on social media about a person.”

She was hit with a $2,700 fine, and told she’d be deported from Abu Dhabi, where she’s lived since 2012.  More

    What never ceases to amaze me is how westerners actually believe that they would be the least bit safe in this hot bed of muslim orthodox fundamentalism with enough oil money at their backs not to really give that much of a damn what tourist think of their extremism. but then some people don’t mind swimming waters where sharks are known to congregate. :)
