A 31-year-old Arab is facing trial before the Dubai Public Prosecution for harassing and threatening a male student to post his explicit pictures online.
Major General Expert Khalil Ibrahim Al Mansouri, Assistant Commander-in-Chief for Criminal Investigation Affairs at Dubai Police says, “Extortionists pretend they are children, trying to persuade victims to perform sexual acts or exchanging pictures and then threaten them with sending these pictures to the victims’ families and friends.”
The Public Prosecution indicated that according to Article 16 of Federal Decree-Law No. 5 of 2012 regarding combating information technology crimes and its amendments, a penalty of imprisonment for a period not exceeding two years and a fine of no less than Dhs250,000 and not more than Dhs500,000, or either of these two penalties for Blackmail or threaten another person to get him to do or abstain from doing an act using a computer network or an information technology means.
The European Union has warned Russia it will not bend to "blackmail" over its support for Kyiv after the Kremlin cut off gas supplies to Bulgaria and Poland.
The case dates back to last May, when an Asian woman lodged a complaint with the police reporting that her son had been blackmailed by an Asian man, who forced him to steal her jewellery that valued Dhs50,000-60,000.
The woman said that she had a friendship with that person during which he promised her to marry but she was married to another person, so she asked him not to contact her again.
The complainant added in the investigations that he had received a call from a person who claimed to be the woman’s husband, that he had discovered their relationship and that he would separate from her.
The Dubai Court of Appeal upheld a verdict issued by the Court of First Instance sentencing an Arab to three months in jail to be followed by deportation after being convicted of blackmailing his ex-wife with photos and video clips showing her in indecent clothes that he kept while they were married.
