It was thought that the men and women involved in the naked photoshoot would be sentenced to 6 to 18 months in prison and fined, but this did not happen.
Remember that spreading obscenity in public places in Dubai, drinking alcohol, taking objectionable videos and photoshoots is a crime, and such acts are punishable by imprisonment for 6 to 18 months and a fine.
The incident took place last week, April 3, in which about a dozen white European women were seen posing naked on a building in the Marina area of Dubai’s high-rise buildings.
Dubai police arrested about 40 people, including a dozen women involved in the incident when a short video of the incident went viral on Arab social media.
It was not immediately clear why or for what purpose the video went viral, but the video suggests it was shot secretly.
The video, which went viral, showed a dozen women naked on the balcony of a high-rise building in Dubai, apparently posing for a photoshoot.
According to UAE media reports after the video went viral, the photoshoot of the naked women in the video was a promotional event.
However, the report did not say what kind of promotional event the women were holding.
It is believed that in other UAE states, including Dubai, tourists are allowed to drink alcohol, have concerts and dance parties, but no inappropriate action can be taken in public places and violators face legal action.
