3 arrested over Dubai party for 100 during Covid-19


DUBAI – A DJ and two managers have been arrested for organizing a party in Dubai that drew a crowd of 100 people, according to a Dubai Police official.

Brigadier Jamal Salem Al Jallaf, director of General Department of Criminal Investigations at Dubai Police, said arrests were made after a video of the illegal party went viral on social media.

Police arrested the DJ, the general manager of a tourism company and its marketing director for organizing the party.

Al Jallaf said the organisers did not have an official permit for the party, which “clearly violated social distancing rules”.

The police official said that the party “put the lives of many at risk”.

Under the UAE law, a fine of Dh10,000 will be imposed on anyone who organizes gatherings during the coronavirus pandemic. Participants of these gatherings will also be fined Dh5,000 each.
