DUBAI, KOMPAS.TV – Dubai police have arrested a group of people on charges of public depravity following a widely circulated video showing naked women posing on a balcony in the city.

In the United Arab Emirates (UAE), violations of public decency laws, including naked acts and other indecent behavior, carry up to 6 months in prison and a fine of 5,000 dirhams (or nearly IDR 20 million). The distribution of pornographic material is also punishable by imprisonment and large fines under state law based on Islamic or Sharia law.

Dubai police said they had arrested several people in connection with the “indecent” video and filed them for public prosecution.
