New UAE Online Law

New UAE Online Law: Dh250,000 fine for swearing on WhatsApp
Expatriates could also be deported from the UAE.

People swearing (the use of offensive language)  online at others could be fined Dh 250,000 and jailed, while expatriates could also be deported from the UAE under a new federal law governing internet users.

The new law was underscored by the Federal Supreme Court (FSC), which overturned two lower court sentences fining a man Dh 3,000 after he was convicted of swearing at another on WhatsApp.
