More than 100 UAE residents will be facing stern legal action after police authorities found out that they tampered with their Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test results to enter the capital.
According to Salem Al Zaabi, Acting Director of the Federal Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Prosecution, the 102 residents are of different nationalities attempting to enter Abu Dhabi with altered documents.
“As part of the country’s effort to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and following the instructions by the concerned authorities, Abu Dhabi Police referred 102 people to prosecution for changing PCR letter data in an attempt to enter Abu Dhabi,” he was quoted as saying by Gulf News.
Currently, the group is under the custody of the Abu Dhabi Police and will face legal action.
“Anyone who doesn’t follow the precautionary measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 will face legal action as part of supporting the country’s effort to control the pandemic on all health, economic and social levels,” he further added.
