He also called on anyone who films or views such materials to report crimes and not to publish or circulate such materials without legal permission, in line with their obligations to achieve the common good and to not be held legally accountable.
Based on the recent monitoring of some social media sites, the publication of videos and pictures of various crimes, some of which show both victims and accused persons, constitute multiple crimes against photographers and publishers, Al Shamsi said.
