A Dubai man has been arrested under Cybercrime Law after he posted a video of himself swearing, threatening and insulting Dubai Police.
He was arrested in Dubai according to Article 20 of the UAE Cybercrime Law. The law states ‘any person who insults others via any electronic means shall be punished by imprisonment or a fine of not less than Dh250,000 and not more than Dh500,000.’
“Insult or slander against public employees is considered an aggravating circumstance of the crime,” Dubai Police said.
Dubai Police rescue heart attack victim
Dubai Police raced to the rescue after a crane operator suffered a heart attack in Jebel Ali. And, scarily, it happened while he was in his crane 65 metres above the ground.
To add to the drama, rescuers had to climb up to the top of the crane after the crane’s electric lift broke down. Thankfully technicians were able to repair it by the time paramedics reached the man. The police then had to join together and lift the man to safety and into a waiting ambulance.
The crane operator was unloading container ships at Jebel Ali Port when he was hit by the heart attack 65m above ground, the equivalent of 13 floors.
“Joined by first responders from Dubai Civil Defence, Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services, and the Land Rescue team at Dubai Police, our teams leapt into action to save the man in distress,” said Lt Col Yahya Muhammad, head of the Difficult Missions Section at Dubai Police’s Department of Transport and Rescue.
