This Man Was Arrested For Taking Video Of A Man In RTA Office
If you’re planning to take a photo or video of someone because he or she is doing something unfamiliar in the UAE, don’t do it.
Why? Because an unidentified man was arrested for posting a video of a man crying in a Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).
The video went viral.
He was arrested.
Why? Because under the UAE law it’s considered as invasion of privacy and can lead to a fine between AED 150,000 and AED 500,000 and a one-year jail term.
The Dubai Police reminded residents about the rule as taking photos and videos of someone without prior permission in the UAE is punishable by law.
