The Dubai Police have arrested an Arab actress (M.H) for organising two birthday parties at two different restaurants for a number of guests in a closed place in violation of the resolution No. 38 of 2020 issued by the Attorney General of the United Arab Emirates on enforcement of penalties for violations following Cabinet Resolution No. 17 of 2020 to contain the spread of the coronavirus, COVID-19.
Brigadier Jamal Salem Al Jallaf, director of the General Department of Criminal Investigations at Dubai Police, confirmed that they arrested the violator when she posted a video in her Snapchat account of the crowded party where she and her guests have disregarded the social distancing and wearing masks rules.
The Director of Dubai CID further noted that resolution No. (38) for 2020 states that a fine of Dhs10,000 is applicable to whoever invites or organises gatherings, meetings, private and public celebrations or being present in groups at public places or private farms.
Brigadier Al Jallaf stressed that the Dubai Police won’t tolerate violators to the announced precautionary measures against COVID-19.
“These measures have been put in place to protect members of the community and curb the pandemic,” “We call upon all tourism companies, local businesses and community members to support efforts to limit the spread of Covid-19, maintain social distancing, and refrain from organising or attending crowded events that could contribute to spreading the virus,” Brigadier Al Jallaf concluded.
Brigadier Mubarak Khalfan Al Razi, Director of the Punitive and Correctional Institution, said the implementation of the system is part of a series of preventive and precautionary measures taken by the country to ensure the safety of community members, by limiting the presence of people visiting institutions to hand over cash to inmates.
