Dont take photo or video without permission in UAE, fine AED500,000 plus imprisonment

If you're planning to take photo of video to anyone in United Arab Emirates without consent, well, this is for your information. These case in United Arab Emirates is treated as invasion of privacy and can lead to fines of between AED150,000 and AED500,000 plus at least one year imprisonment, according to Gulf News. 

This reminder comes as Dubai Police have arrested a man for filming another person while at a Roads and Transport Authority's customer care center. But more than just taling the video, the suspect also posted the footage on social media, where the video went viral shortly.

In a series of tweets, the RTA maintained the man who appeared in the video clip crying at the customer care center was not an employee of a taxi company, and does notbear any fines under his name. 

"The man was at the headquarters to inquire about the DH20,000 in fines against his relative who worked as a driver at the Cars Taxi franchise. An investigation is underway to determine the reasons for the driver's fines," said RTA.

"We would like to emphasize that the relevant authorities have been notified to take legal action against the person who filmed and published the video."

According to the Federal Decree Law No. 5 of 2012 of the Cybercrime Law, residents who breach the privacy of others can face a hefty fine between AED150,000 and AED 500,000, in addition to at least one year in jail.
