Woman caught punching herself in the face twice to 'frame husband for domestic violence'
Just eight months after their wedding, Faisal started noticing that actual motive behind why his Moroccan wife Asmae married him and was in the country may not have been love
A heartbroken man in Sydney has demanded that his wife be thrown out of Australia after she unsuccessfully, and maliciously, tried to frame him and potentially land him in thousands of dollars in debt. Just eight months after their magical wedding, Faisal started noticing that the actual motive behind why his Moroccan wife Asmae married him and was in the country may not have been love after all. The man, who met his wife on a Muslim dating site, had spoken to a lawyer and a visa migration professional regarding this crisis.
This email that he sent was found by Asmae, News.com.au reported. Afraid that getting divorced from Faisal could end her stay in Australia, she hatched a devious scheme. Speaking to Australian Channel 9's A Current Affair, Faisal said that he went back to his home one night in April and found that their apartment had been ransacked.
‘Deport my wife!’#EXCLUSIVE: This Aussie met his Moroccan bride online, but after eight months of marriage she tried to frame him for an assault. Only problem – her cowardly plot was caught on camera. MONDAY on #9ACA pic.twitter.com/rEWBbVwgHw— A Current Affair (@ACurrentAffair9) November 30, 2018
Faisal said that Asmae had been waiting for him and told him when she saw him: "You think you are smart about me and you’re talking to lawyers. Now see what I do to you." The woman then fled from the apartment and into the building's elevator. She was then caught in the elevator CCTV camera punching herself in the face violently. She then runs from the building and calls authorities.
Hours after she placed the call, Faisal was arrested by authorities and subsequently charged with assault. After spending more than $20,000 in legal fees and combing through hundreds of hours of CCTV footage, Faisal finally found the crucial bit of evidence that he needed to be free from his wife's false accusation.
He told A Current Affair in the interview: "I didn’t think she would go to that extent and go to the police after everything I did for her and forget everything and just ruin my life." Asmae then fled Sydney and is currently living somewhere in Australia. Faisal has since urged the Australian government to send his estranged wife back to her home country of Morocco.
Faisal said: "I am the victim now. I got used and abused over and over again emotionally, mentally, financially — you name it. I’m the victim. She did that so now it’s her turn to face the consequences." He is now slowly working to pay off his debts that include the Sydney apartment. He also has a dire warning for others like him.
He warned: "If god shows you a picture, don’t try to paint it with different colours. Just stick with that or you’ll end up like me."
