Faith healer blackmails three sisters
The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (Haia) in Dammam has arrested a man who pretended to be a faith healer and was blackmailing three sisters by publishing their private photos with him.
The Haia officials ambushed the blackmailer after the women reported him to the relevant authorities.
The women believed in performing incantations and went to see the faith healer who deluded them into believing that they were possessed by jinn. He beat one of them on the head, performed incantation and gave her a ring, which he made her believe belonged to a king of jinn. He then took a photo of her in addition to downloading some private photos from her mobile.
He later used the photos to blackmail the woman into doing his bidding.
The man also deluded one of the other two sisters into believing that she was possessed and needed treatment at the hand of another man in a neighboring country.
He escorted her and her husband to the neighboring country where another fake faith healer examined her and upon return to the Kingdom he lived in the woman’s house for couple of months to monitor her case closely.
While staying in her house, he took pictures of the woman and used them against her, which triggered family disputes between the woman and her husband leading to a divorce.
The Haia also discovered that the imposter had stolen gold and jewelry from a third sister after telling her she was possessed. He had also taken photos of her and threatened to show them to her relatives unless she bowed to his demands.
After a while, the women could not put up with the fear he created in their lives and decide to report him to the authorities who arrested him and put an end to the sufferings of the three sisters.
