risks arrest for vulgar gesture after league game

Cristiano Ronaldo got into trouble in Saudi Arabia. The former Real Madrid and Juventus striker left the pitch after Al Nassr’s derby defeat against Al Hilal and responded to the pro-Messi chants of local fans by touching his genitals. There are even those who are calling for his arrest, those who are calling for his expulsion from the country. A rude gesture that made him the center of controversy in the media and on social media. In addition to the image damage, however, a possible and serious consequence has arisen.

A gesture described as obscene by Nouf bin Ahmed, lawyer and professor at the University of Geneva, consultant and accredited to the centers of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law. He announced on Twitter that he would apply to the Ministry of State of Saudi Arabia for the arrest and expulsion of Cristiano Ronaldo: “I don’t follow any sport. Al Hilal’s public provoked Cristiano who didn’t know how to react Cristiano is a crime. A publicly indecent act that is one of the crimes punishable by arrest and deportation when committed by a foreigner. We will file a petition with the prosecutor.”
