Coronavirus: Dubai Police arrest DJ, two managers for organising party
The violators were arrested when a video of the crowded party started circulating across social media platforms.
A DJ and two others have been arrested in Dubai for organising a party, flouting Covid-19 regulations.
The DJ, the general manager of a tourism company and its marketing director were held for party in a closed place where 100 guests were invited.
Brigadier Jamal Salem Al Jallaf, director of the General Department of Criminal Investigations at Dubai Police, confirmed that they arrested the violators when a video of the crowded party started circulating across social media platforms. "The organisers, who had not acquired necessary permission from competent authorities, clearly violated social distancing rules and the announced precautionary measures against coronavirus, and put the lives of many at risk," he said.
Brigadier Al Jallaf added that a fine of Dh10,000 is applicable to whoever invites or organises gatherings, meetings, private and public celebrations or being present in groups at public places or private farms.
He once again stressed that the police won't tolerate violations of precautionary measures against Covid-19.
"These measures have been put in place to protect members of the community and curb the pandemic. We call upon all tourism companies, local businesses and community members to support efforts to limit the spread of Covid-19, and to maintain social distancing and refrain from organising or attending crowded events that could contribute to spreading the virus," Brig. Al Jallaf said.
