DUBAI – Eight people have been jailed in Abu Dhabi and Ras Al Khaimah for organizing wedding parties violating precautionary rules in the country.
According to the Emergency and Crisis Prosecution, the guests did not wear masks and also failed to observe social distancing. Two incidents occurred in Abu Dhabi, and one took place in Ras Al Khaimah.
Wedding parties are banned in the UAE as part of a precautionary measure against the spread of coronavirus.
Prosecutors have warned that anyone caught violating Covid-19 rules will face legal action, apart from fines.
On Friday, the Ministry of Health and Prevention and the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) announced that any family event held in the UAE must have a maximum of 10 people who are first degree relatives.
