Parrot blows the whistle on husband's affair

A parrot revealed phrases from his owner's affair with a housemaid.

A woman, who chose not be named,, had suspected that her husband had been having a liaison with their cleaner and believed her thoughts even further when her pet kept repeating flirty messages which were allegedly picked up from the house.

With the couple being form Kuwai in Persia, adultery is illegal, meaning that affairs could lead to a prison sentence or hard labour.
