Dubai Police has warned residents, especially those planning to defy them on social media, not to mock the #StayHome campaign otherwise their photos will be posted online for public to see.
In an ARN interview, Colonel Saeed Al Hajeri, Director of the CID’s Cybercrime Department at the Dubai Police, confirmed that they have been arresting and fining people for their activities online.
Al Hajeri said that they are not holding back in publishing the photos of violators online should they found guilty.
Just very recently, the Dubai Police has arrested an Asian man for mockery and posting edited video of a government building with wolves howling.
“The man has been referred to competent authorities for further legal action against him,” the statement read.
