The Public Prosecution referred to Article 294 of the Federal Penal Code, which says ''who ever deliberately removes, breaks, or damages one of the machines, tools, or signboards necessary for the prevention of accidents, or surveillance cameras, or who renders such items not good for use anymore or who renders such items to be faulty by anyway whatsoever, shall be sentenced to imprisonment for a duration not less than a year and a fine of not less than Dhs50,000.''
