Following the launch of a new movement permit for Dubai, Dubai Media Office announced that police would remove all violations of the newly announced restrictions on movement detected by radars – this is limited to violations from the time of announcement of new restrictions on Saturday to the time of permit launch on Sunday.
The new permit facility was launched on Sunday for residents who wish to leave their home for work (in exempt vital sectors only) and for residents stepping out for essential shopping of grocery and medicines. On Saturday, Dubai had announced a 24-hour restriction on movement following the extension of the sterilisation drive for two weeks.
The media office added in a later tweet that radars will not be activated for those moving between the emirates via Dubai’s external roads. The tweet also added that these motorists shouldn’t stop in Dubai.
