Dubai police arrest person who shot video of valet refusing to get off from car bonnet

Filming someone without their permission and posting the clip on social media is against the law in the UAE


Dubai Police have arrested the person who filmed and shared the video of a man who refused to get off from the bonnet of a moving car in the emirate.

The video clip, which went viral after it was uploaded on social media sites on Tuesday, shows a man climbing on the car even as the driver attempts to move forward. The incident took place at a traffic signal near Madinat Jumeirah.

Officials also said that the person who filmed the clip has been arrested for violating the UAE’s cyber laws of filming of people without their knowledge and sharing their photos on social networks or other websites.

Colonel Faisal Al-Qasim, director of the department of security information, said violators face imprisonment for six months and/ or a fine ranging from Dhs150,000 to up Dhs500,000.

He urged the public to communicate with the police and report any suspicious activity, accident, crime, or disagreement directly through the Dubai police app or its website.

“Never share videos with relatives or friends even if it is in good faith, so that they do not suffer legal accountability,” he added.

Police also confirmed that the man in the video clip – a valet driver in one of the hotels – got into a dispute with the driver of the car – a woman – and that they had both been summoned to the police station and charged with endangering lives.

Officials said the dispute broke out over whether she had given him the correct parking ticket.
