Dubai Police arrests group of people for appearing in ‘indecent video’ shared online

The accused could face up to six months in jail and a fine of Dhs5,000

The Dubai Police has arrested a group of people who appeared in an “indecent video” that was shared online.

A criminal case has been registered against the suspects and they have been referred to the public prosecution for further action, a statement said.

The police warned against such “unacceptable behaviour”, stating that they do not “reflect the values and ethics of Emirati society”.

The accused could face up to six months in jail and a fine of Dhs5,000.

Police cited article 361 of the Federal Penal Code, which states that: “Whoever publicly appeals, sings, or engages in lewd speech or seduces others publicly into debauchery in any manner whatsoever, shall be punished by detention for at most six months and by a fine not exceeding Dhs5,000, or by either of these two penalties.”

It also warned that under UAE cybercrime laws, anyone who produces or publishes material related to gambling and pornography online can face a punishment of prison and fines of between Dhs250,000 to Dhs500,000.
