Article 372 Federal Law No. 3 of 1987 and its amendments (The UAE Penal Code) states that “Whoever attributes to another person, by any means of publicity, an incident which makes him liable to punishment or contempt, shall be punished by detention for a period not exceeding two years or by a fine not exceeding Dh20,000”. In addition pursuant to Article 20 of the Federal Decree by Law No. 5 of 2012 on Combating Cyber Crimes and its amendments (“Cyber Crimes Law”) states that, “Without prejudice to the provisions of slander crime prescribed in Islamic Sharia, any person who insults a third party or has attributed to him an incident that may make him subject to punishment or contempt by a third party, by using an Information Network or an Information Technology Tool shall be punished by imprisonment and a fine not less than (AED 250,000) and not exceeding (AED 500,000) or by any of these punishments.

Article 7 “If the juvenile, who completed the age of seven and didn't reach the age of sixteen, perpetrated a crime sanctioned by the penal law or in any other law, the judge shall order to take the measures he deems adequate”

Article 8 “Should the juvenile who completed the age of sixteen perpetrate a crime sanctioned by the Penal Code, or any other law (1), the judge may order to take any of the measures stipulated in this law, as deemed appropriate by him, instead of the prescribed penalties”

Further, Article 15 of the said law lays out the punishments that may be imposed on a juvenile subject to the discretion of the Judge which includes, judicial supervision, charity work and could include heavier punishment such as permanent deportation from the UAE.

Article 15:

Measures that may be taken in respect of the juvenile are the following:

1. Rebuke.
2. Handing him over.
3. Putting him under judicial supervision.
4. Prohibition to frequent specific places.
5. Interdiction of performing a specific work.
6. Compelling him to undergo professional training.
7. Confining in a treatment asylum, rehabilitation institute educational home therapeutically shelter, rehabilitation institute, educational house or reformation institute, as the case may be.
8. Deportation outside the country.

Defamation is considered a serious offence in the UAE, and the punishments imposed include imprisonment, fines and deportation. With the increasing use of social media, incidents of cyberbullying which include defamatory elements, are also on the rise, and juveniles can both be the targets and perpetrators of such acts. Pursuant to the provisions discussed above, a juvenile can be prosecuted for committing any act that is penalized under the UAE laws.

What will be the punishment for fake claims in court?
Submitting fake claims in the UAE can be subject to the provisions of the ‘false accusations’ under the UAE Penal Code. In this article, we will endeavour to discuss the concept of making fake claims or accusations under UAE law and it’s resultant punishments. The federal law no. 3 of 1987 and its amendments (the UAE Civil Code) defines the act of providing false reports to judicial or administrative authorities in the UAE as a punishable offence. The punishment can include imprisonment as well as fines. The significant factor checked by the UAE courts in false accusation crimes includes the aspect of ‘bad faith’. In addition, if a false accusation leads to another person being convicted, then the same penalty shall be applied to the fabricator. Article 276, states: Detention, a fine, or one of these two penalties shall be imposed upon any one who, in bad faith, gives a false report to judicial or administrative authorities concerning commission by a person of an act or omission which entails a criminal punishment or administrative disciplinary action, even if no criminal or disciplinary action follows, as well as anyone who, contrary to the truth, fabricates material evidences on the commission of a crime by a person, or caused legal proceedings to be taken against a person, knowing of his innocence. Detention or a fine shall apply to both cases if the fabricated crime is a felony; if the fabrication leads to a criminal judgment, the, fabricator shall be punished by the same penalty. Similarly, if a fake claim is based on forged documents, it invites punishments and penalties under forgery. Forgery is defined under the UAE laws as ‘an act that alters the reality of a written instrument in a manner so as to cause prejudice and with the intention of substituting the false alteration for the genuine document’. The punishment for forgery includes imprisonment for up to 10 years and fines. Article 216 of the UAE penal code states seven methods that are considered as committing the crime of forgery, and they include: * "To alter a genuine instrument, whether by adding, or removing or changing any of its written parts, numbers, marks or pictures. * To falsely sign or place a forged seal, or to alter a genuine signature, seal or imprint. * To obtain by surprise or by fraud the signature, seal or imprint of a person who ignores the contents of the instrument or who has not validly given his consent thereon. * To make falsely or imitate an instrument and attribute it to another person. * To fill a blank paper which is signed, sealed or imprinted, without the approval of the person who has signed, sealed or imprinted it. * To assume the name of another person or to substitute it in a document which has been prepared specifically to prove the identity of such other person. * A material alteration of writing with a deceitful and fraudulent intent, preventing therefore the genuine intent of the instrument from being achieved." Raising a fake claim in the UAE is treated as a felony in most instances and may invite punishments for more than one offence, as we discussed above. The UAE heavily relies on the good faith principle, and the legal requisite remains that any report of submission provided to the judicial authorities in the UAE should be based on good faith.
Avoid labour and visa fraud when applying for a job in the UAE
UAE offers lucrative job offers, and ex-pats are highly enthusiastic about building a career and life in the UAE. The UAE’s ex-pat population constitutes almost ninety per cent of its total population, and ex-pats find that UAE offers them a peaceful and tax-free environment. Any person who wishes to come to the UAE in search of a job opportunity must be careful to conduct the necessary due diligence and ensure to follow the legal requisites.  Job offer letter: If a UAE based company /employer offers you a job opportunity, such Employer must first issue you an official offer letter as per the pre-requisites of the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MOHRE). Such an offer letter, once signed by both the parties, constitutes a binding agreement between the parties, and the validity of the offer can be verified by the employee through the MOHRE website.  Employment visa: Once the job offer is signed by both parties, the Employer is required to issue an entry visa to the employee to enter the UAE and start his employment. The finalization of the employment visa  will be completed once the employee reaches the UAE and successfully passes the medical checks and procedures required for the visa process. It is important to note that it is specifically prohibited in the UAE for any person who is on a visit visa to work. Working under a visit or tourist visa can bring you penalties and deportation. It is also important to keep in mind that an employer is obligated to pay for the visa costs for an employee, and it is illegal that such cost is recovered from the employee at any given point. Employment Contract: The employee is also required to enter into a valid employment contract which would be based on the terms of the ‘job offer’ already signed between the parties. The Employer is not allowed to make any changes to the terms included in the job offer letter. The employee should enter into the labour contract after reviewing and understanding the various clauses. It is important to understand the terms about ‘probation period’, ‘notice period’, ‘nature of the employment -whether limited-term or unlimited term’ etc. The employment contract is entered into three counterparts, and the one copy is retained with the employee itself. Always complete due diligence checks before accepting any job offers. Learn more about the Employer by visiting their website details. You can also check their trade license details by accessing the ‘Unified Commercial Registration System’ maintained by the Ministry of the economy. It is always advisable to check the information on the company through various web resources such as ‘Google reviews’, ‘LinkedIn’, ‘Glassdoor’ and also speak with existing employees to verify credentials. Be careful about social media advertisements and hiring agencies that seek to charge you for the visa or employment offer itself, as both are against the UAE laws.
How to change local sponsor in Dubai?
Prior to the recent amendment of the Federal Law No.2 of 2015 and its amendments (‘UAE Commercial Companies Law’), it was a mandatory requirement for expats to have a local sponsor to be appointed in the company. Such local sponsors would also be holding 51% of the total shareholding of the company. The local sponsor will also hold additional duties as well as rights , or in some instances, the parties would enter into a side agreement to ensure that the full operational control rests with the foreign expat alone. With the latest changes effected in the Commercial companies’ law, the previous restrictions imposed on foreign entities is now greatly removed to a larger extend. A foreign entity or person may now invest and own up to 100% of the total shareholding in the company in the UAE and thus excluding the previous mandatory requirement of a local sponsor. The new amendments also provide the UAE authorities to determine certain activities to hold a ‘strategic impact’ and thereby to be reserved for Emirati participation on an emirate level. Each emirate is thus required to release its list of business activities that may be carried out with 100% foreign ownership and thus, do not require a local sponsor. These changes have been affected under the Federal Decree-Law no. 26 of 2020, and these changes are in effect from 1 June 2021. The Dubai Economy has listed around 1000 commercial and industrial activities that are allowed for 100% foreign ownership. Clarifying the requirements under the new law, the Dubai Economic department has released its statement that “ Full ownership does not bring any change to current procedures or requirements for licensing, except that it’s no longer mandatory to have an Emirati partner (Local sponsor) or specify a fixed quota ratio for him/her. Dubai Economy clarified that a reduction of the percentage share of the Emirati partner from 51% or his /her withdrawal from the partnership is possible according to the legal procedures followed”. Steps for effecting the changes: In order to effect the changes in an existing company that endeavours to move from a 49 % foreign ownership to 100% foreign ownership, the following steps may be undertaken: Existing companies can change to a 100% ownership structure by amending their existing Memorandum association (MOA) as registered with the economic department to reflect the changes. This would require the legal steps to be followed as per existing procedures of providing - Board resolution of existing shareholders to consenting to the said changes; -Obtaining initial approval from the economic department;   - Registering the amended MOA and paying the requisite fees;  - Amending the trade license of the company to reflect the changes made. - It is not possible to change an LLC company with more than one shareholder into a Sole Proprietorship under the existing laws, however; instead, it is possible to transfer the license to a solely owned limited liability company. - Also, no additional governmental fees, guarantees or capital is required to effect the changes for full foreign ownership.
How Social Media May Affect Your Georgia Car Accident Claim
After being involved in a car accident, it isn’t uncommon for friends and family members to message you to find out if you are okay. You may be tempted to post an update on social media to let everyone know what is happening.  Unfortunately, this can backfire. If you plan to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party, anything you post on social media can be used against you.  A smart way to avoid this situation is to avoid using social media completely until your accident case is settled. You can also ask your Georgia personal injury attorney about what you have to say before posting it.  While this is what you should do, it’s also important to understand how posting the wrong thing on social media may affect you.  The Types of Social Media Posts That May Hurt Your Accident Claim The other side (or at-fault party) can use any information that you post on social media and use it out of context against you. Even if you post a picture of something completely unrelated to the accident – like a photo of you walking your dog – it may be used to say that you are actually in good health or uninjured.  However, other types of posts will definitely hurt your case. These include: Apologizing: It is only natural to feel sympathy for everyone who was part of the accident. However, an insurance company may see your apology as an admission of fault. Conceding any level of fault: You may accidentally post information that implies you were partially or completely at fault, like that you missed a step and fell. If this happens, the other side may say you weren’t paying attention, so the accident and your injuries aren’t their faults.   Dismissing all or some of your injuries: If you want to prevent people from worrying about you, you may try to minimize how serious your injuries are on social media. However, the insurance company can use this to argue that you aren’t badly hurt.  Venting about the accident: You may want to vent your anger toward the driver that caused the accident. Doing this via social media may not benefit your case at all. The insurance company may say your claim is based on revenge or anger.  The Risks of Posting on Social Media After an Accident Even if you don’t think you are posting something that will impact your claim, insurance companies and defense attorneys may try to twist what you post to benefit them. For example, if you post something like “the other car appeared out of nowhere,” they may use this to say you weren’t paying attention and, therefore, you are partly at fault.  Also, if you post something that contradicts your statements, it can be extremely damaging to your case. Avoid any photos or videos of you staying active, traveling, and similar things during the accident claim.  Tips for Using Social Media After an Accident  After an accident, if you plan to continue using social media, some tips to help you avoid hurting your case include: Avoid oversharing Never accept a new friend or follow requests from someone you don’t know Refrain from posting anything until your case is closed (if possible) Never post photos or videos of you being active if you have stated your injuries have prevented you from working Avoid posting anything negative about the other people involved Contact a Personal Injury Attorney for Help Hiring a personal injury attorney to help with your accident claim is smart. During an active auto accident lawsuit, they can also provide practical advice about what you can and cannot post on social media. 
Can a cheque bounce after it has been cleared?
A returned cheque can invite both civil and criminal liabilities on an individual pursuant to the UAE laws. Therefore, it is very important, that UAE residents are well aware of the responsibilities in financial transactions including the potential risks. Federal Decree-Law No. (14) of 2020 Amending Certain Provisions of the Federal Law No. (18) of 1993 ‘Concerning the Commercial Transaction Law’ (‘New decree’), states that: Article (600): * Acceptance does not apply to cheques. Any wording of acceptance written on a cheque shall be null and void.  * The drawee of a cheque may initial the cheque for approval. Such approval shall confirm the availability of sufficient fund with drawee to pay the value of the cheque as on the date of initialing. The signature of drawee on the face of the cheque shall constitute an approval.  * The drawee may not reject the approval of the cheque if the drawer or bearer asks it to do so should the drawee have sufficient fund to partially or wholly pay the value of the cheque. * The drawee shall freeze with it and under its liability the required fund to pay the value of approved cheque, or the remaining amount of a partially paid approved cheque, for the benefit of the bearer until the expiry date of submitting the cheque for payment. Further pursuant to Article 617(3): The drawee shall report the details of the account holder to the Central Bank, in accordance with the rules and regulations issued by the Central Bank, in any of the following cases: * Where no sufficient, existing and usable fund for the payment of the value of cheque is available at the date of its maturity, * Where the drawer, after issuing the cheque, withdraw all the fund for payment so it is not possible to pay its value, or * Where the drawee partially pay the value of the cheque in accordance with (2) of this Article. The amended provisions thus impose criminal penalty on the following offences: * Cheque falsification; * Cheque forgery; * Ordering the Bank not to pay the cheque amount; and * Withdrawing the account balance prior the date of the cheque to prevent encashment. Under the new provisions if a cheque is submitted for clearing and post the same if the drawee withdraws the account balance to prevent the encashment of the cheque it would invite penalty. The new decree is proposed to be in effect from January 2022 onwards and imposes a criminal penalty of 10% of the cheque value for bounced cheque matters on the issuer of the cheque and subject to a minimum penalty charge amount of Aed 5000 and a maximum penalty charge amount of no more than twice the cheque value.
New Updates on how UAE combats cybercrime: Punishments and Penalties
The UAE has been at the forefront of taking decisive and proactive measures to curb the prevalence of cyber-attacks in the region. The strategy and success in combatting cybercrimes in the region lies in the adoption of more comprehensive and streamlined laws and regulations with stricter penalties. In this article, we would like to take you through the main concepts of cybercrime with a special focus on how the UAE tackles these issues. What is ‘cybercrime’: Cybercrime involves the use of a computer as an instrument to further illegal ends, such as committing fraud, trafficking in child pornography and intellectual property, identity theft, or privacy violations etc. It involves distributing viruses, illegally downloading of files, phishing and stealing personal information like bank account details etc. A crime can be thus be distinguished as a ‘cybercrime’, if the key ingredients of the crime include ‘computer’ and ‘internet’. For this reason, cybercrimes are often termed ‘computer crimes’. Cyber-crimes can be further classified into five categories: 1. Economic crime – Economic cyberattacks are often highly organized crimes that use the most advanced technology and tools to commit such crime, often via hacking. 2. Terrorism: A cyber-attack is a term as an act of terrorism if it is targeted against a nation’s interests, particularly targeting its infrastructure, economy, resources etc. 3. Activism: ‘Wikileaks’ would be the right example to showcase an activist cybercrime, wherein the hacking is done in furtherance to an idealistic agenda. 4. Espionage: This can include both corporate and political espionage. Wherein the offender tries to obtain confidential information, protected trade secrets and other intellectual property rights to gain commercial or political advantage. 5. Warfare: Cyberwarfare involves action by a private or international organization attempting to damage or attack another nation actively by targeting its information network or computer system. How the UAE tackles instances of cybercrimes: - The telecom regulatory authority (TRA) actively monitors the information and content available online and takes prohibitory measures for content that is malicious in nature. - TRA also initiates curbing measures against unlicensed VoIP service providers, including illegal websites. - The licensing telecom service providers in the UAE such as ‘Du’ and ‘Etisalat’, also take prohibitory measures to block online content based on complaints received for abusive or defamatory aspects. - UAE authorities often take stringent legal action against unauthorized websites after verifying the validity and seriousness of each cyber complaint. Stringent penalties are imposed depending on the veracity of the act;  - For example: An act of IP address forgery can be punished with imprisonment of up to three years and a fine of up to AED 500,000.  - Privacy violations, whether it is illegal hacking and obtaining private picture or other reformation, are very strictly punished.  - Acts of forgery can be punished with fines ranging from Aed 100,000 to up to 300,00, and if such an act is committed against the government, then the penalties can be up to Aed 1 million in fines and imprisonment sentence. - Acts of cyber hacking against banks in order to obtain illegal data concerning banking accounts and card information can be punished with huge fines of up to Aed 1 million and also with imprisonment.

What are the Punishments for Physical Assault In Public?
Understanding ‘Assault’: An assault is an ‘act of inflicting physical harm on another person’. Depending on the gravity of the offence and its underlying circumstances, legal recourse to an action in tort, criminal prosecution, as well as civil liability can be adjudged. The United Arab Emirates categorizes ‘assault’ as a violent crime wherein even the threat of an assault can be actionable under the criminal laws. The underlying factors surrounding the offence and the veracity of the damage caused to the other party are taken into consideration. Different categories of assault and their punishments: The Federal law no. 3 of 1987 concerning promulgating the penal code and its amendment (UAE Penal Code), categories ‘assault’ into various types, such as: Assault causing death: A person shall be sentenced to imprisonment for a period not exceeding ten years, whoever assaults the body safety of others, by any means without intention to kill him but the assault resulted in the death of the victim (Article 336). If the intention to cause death is established, the provisions of this article will not apply, and more stringent punishment will be imposed. Assaulting causing permanent disability: A person shall be sentenced to imprisonment for a period not exceeding seven years, whoever deliberately causes to another a ‘permanent disability’. ‘Permanent disability’ is defined as ‘the type of disability when the injury results in severance or dismemberment of an organ or its partial amputation or the loss or diminution of use thereof, or to permanent total or partial failure of the functioning of any senses’(Article 337). Further, a person shall be sentenced to imprisonment for a term not exceeding five years, whoever assaults by any means the body safety of others and the assault results in unintended permanent disability. Assault under the influence of alcohol: A person shall be sentenced to imprisonment for a period not exceeding ten years if the offender is under the influence of intoxication or stupefaction and assaults by any means the body safety of others, and the assault results in unintended permanent disability. (Article 338). Assault resulting in disability: A person shall be sentenced to detention and to fine, whoever assaults by any means the body safety of others and the assault resulted in his illness or disability to attend to his personal business for a period exceeding twenty days. The penalty shall be detention for a term not exceeding one year and to a fine not in excess of ten thousand Dirham, if the assault did not reach the degree of seriousness mentioned in the above paragraph. Assault on a pregnant woman: In case the assault is perpetrated on a pregnant woman resulting in abortion, this shall be considered an aggravating circumstance with severer punishment that will be imposed on the perpetrator (Article 339). Committing assault in the UAE can thus result in either being charged with a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the veracity of the offence, underlying circumstances and aggravating circumstances relating to the crime. A medical report should be obtained by the victim to record the injuries sustained as a result of the assault. Apart from criminal actions, a victim of a physical assault may also take recourse to a civil claim for damages sustained.
