Coronavirus: Dh30,000 fine for private tutoring in homes, UAE lawyers warn
Teachers and those who arrange the lessons will be punished for flouting Covid-19 preventive measures.
Lawyers in the UAE have warned the public not to allow private tutoring in their homes as this violates precautionary measures implemented to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
According to Arabic media, lawyers said that private tutoring sessions are illegal and punishable by fines of between Dh20,000 to Dh30,000.
They explained that a teacher would breach social-distancing rules by visiting students in different houses, which could in turn lead to the coronavirus spreading.
One lawyer, Hadiya Hamad, said: "Private tutoring sessions are illegal according to Covid-19 precautionary measures. Teachers who provide private classes might be fined by up to Dh30,000."
Hamad added that private tuition is illegal whether it is held in public places, private places or houses, or whether it is free or paid for.
The person responsible for the venue of the lesson would also face a Dh20,000 fine.
