One-hundred-and-two people tampered with their Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test certificates to enter Abu Dhabi, an official said on Thursday.
Salem Al Zaabi, Acting Director of the Federal Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Prosecution, said the Abu Dhabi Police GHQ has referred 102 people of different nationalities to the Federal Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Prosecution for deliberately changing the messages of their COVID-19 test results with the objective of entering Abu Dhabi.
“The move falls within the efforts made by the relevant state authorities to counter the Covid-19 pandemic, curb the virus’ spread and ensure the compliance of all Emiratis and residents with the instructions taken by the relevant authorities,” Al Zaabi added.
Legal action has been taken against the violators who have been detained and orders have been served on their violation, he explained.
“Legal action will be taken against all those who fail to comply with the Covid-19 countermeasures in order to ensure the safety of the society and its protection and support the government measures taken to stem the fallout of the pandemic on the various heath, economic and social aspects of life,” he concluded.
