A group of people posing to photographer, without clothes on Marina building, Dubai, will be deported. The authorities declared the incident in contrast to the values of the United Arab Emirates.
Last week, a group of naked women who were seen posing for the photographer along a balcony railing in the upscale Dubai Marina area was visible from neighbouring buildings. Images of the shoot circulated on social media.
Dubai’s Attorney General Essam Issa Al Humaidan, in a statement published by Dubai Media Office on Tuesday, said,
“The individuals involved will be deported from the United Arab Emirates. No further comment shall be made on the matter.”
The statement did not provide details on the nationalities of those involved.
Dubai Police had announced the arrest of those involved and warned against, on Saturday, “such unacceptable behaviours which do not reflect the values and ethics of Emirati society”.
Foreigners have in the past fallen foul of laws in the UAE, a federation of seven Muslim emirates, on indecency and alcohol consumption, such as for kissing in public.
The UAE in November amended a number of laws on issues such as cohabitation, alcohol and divorce, in a liberalising move seen as a push to make the country more attractive to foreign investment and tourism.
However, laws against immoral and debauched acts remain in the Federal Penal Code. Dubai Police also said the UAE has laws against sharing pornographic or other material that may prejudice public morals.
