Ras Al Khaimah expat arrested for wedding party during Covid-19

 

DUBAI – An Asian expatriate in Ras Al Khaimah has been arrested for hosting a wedding party that broke the UAE’s precautionary measures against Covid-19, police said on Monday (September 14).

The incident was uncovered after the man posted videos of his wedding celebration on social media.

In the videos, the man and his guests were seen gathering at a banquet hall while ignoring all protocols against the spread of coronavirus. The group failed to maintain social distancing and did not wear masks.

The wedding party was also reportedly held without mandatory permits.

Ras Al Khaimah Police said the man faces legal action at the Emergency, Crises and Disasters sector at the Federal Public Prosecution.

The Department of Economic Development also ordered the wedding hall shut down and fined for failing to impose precautionary measures.
