Ask the Law: ?A man insulted me in the airport?

Federal Penal Code No 3 of 1987 and, as amended, chapter six thereof states that the crimes on reputation libel and abuse and article No 10 of the Criminal Procedure Law issued by Federal Law No 35 of 1992 and the laws issued in amendment thereof state that any criminal case over the following crimes shall be filed on the basis of written or oral complaint from the victim or his legal representative; crimes such as insulting and libelling people.

The law also states that such a complaint will be accepted three months after the victim?s knowledge of the crime and its perpetrator unless otherwise provided by law.

Therefore, the questioner may file a criminal complaint in which he proves the abuse by the offender by all means of proof, provided that the incident did not occur more than three months ago.
