DUBAI: Dubai is going to deport a group of people who were involved in shooting an “indecent video” on the balcony of a Dubai Marina apartment.
A statement quoting Dubai’s Attorney General Essam Al Humaidan said it has finalized its investigation into the matter.
“The Public Prosecution office has completed investigations on a recently publicized photo shoot which contravened UAE law,” said Al Humaidan.
“The individuals involved will be deported from the United Arab Emirates,” he continued.
“No further comment shall be made on the matter,” the tweet added.
Earlier this week, Dubai police arrested a group of people including men and women on charges of committing public indecency and taking images of a pornographic nature.
Dubai police said suspects could face six months in jail and Dh5,000 fine against such “unacceptable behaviors”.
It also reminded residents that such acts do not “reflect the values of Emirati society.”
The statement warned that anyone who publicly appeals, sings, or engages in lewd speech or seduces others publicly into debauchery in any manner whatsoever, shall be punished as per article 361 of the Federal Penal Code.
