Clicking someone’s pictures in public without permission is now a punishable crime in the UAE with six-month jail or fine between Dh150,000 to 500,000 or both, according to the amended UAE Cybercrime Law.

The amended cybercrime law in UAE will offer greater protection to citizens and residents in the growing digital era.

The new law, that will come into effect from January 2, 2022, presents tougher penalties in certain crimes such as causing damages to data systems of banks, media, health and science sectors.

New federal decree Law No 34 of 2021 has introduced major amendments to Federal Law 5 of 2012, cybercrimes law, covering crimes committed online. The law aims to enhance community protection against online crimes committed through the use of networks and information technology platforms, protecting public sector websites and databases, combat the spread of rumours and misleading or fake news.
