Ahmed, a lawyer who works with the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law, took to Twitter to call for the Portugal international to be punished.
A lawsuit has since been submitted to the Saudi Public Ministry.
She tweeted: “It’s considered a crime of public dishonor, and it is one of the crimes that entails arrest and deportation if committed by a foreigner.”
Meanwhile, Al-Nassr have defended Ronaldo by claiming he made the gesture after he ‘received a blow during the match’ to his genitals.
