The UAE has enacted resolutions that define the offenses covered by the Penal Order, which includes four penal laws.
In keeping with worldwide trends, UAE Attorney-General Dr Hamad Saif Al Shamsi published guidelines that will help quickly resolve lawsuits as well as provide new judicial and legal services.
According to the resolutions, relevant crimes are defined in Federal Decree-Law No. 31 for 2021 on the promulgation of the Crimes and Punishment Code, the Traffic Law and its amendments, Federal Decree-Law No. 29 for 2021 on foreigner entry and residence, and Federal Decree-Law No. 30 for 2021 on combating narcotics and psychotropic substances.
The resolutions cover 41 different sorts of offenses that might result in penal orders and fines, as long as the fines do not exceed half of the maximum punishment for the applicable fine set by law.
The Public Prosecution also released an awareness film, “An Opportunity,” on social media to emphasize the UAE’s new penal policy, which takes into account the fact that some users are patients and victims of drug dealers. KMB/Expat Media
