UAE: Fine, jail time for tampering with security cameras, signboards

Deliberately damaging or removing signboards and surveillance cameras is considered a crime punishable by imprisonment and a fine of not less than Dh50,000, the UAE’s Public Prosecution said on Saturday.

This apploes to anyone who removes, breaks, or damages any of the machines, tools, or signboards necessary for the prevention of accidents, or surveillance cameras — or whoever renders such items no longer good for use.

If a disaster arises from the crime, the violator shall face temporary imprisonment.

In all cases, the criminal shall be ordered to pay the amount of the damages caused, WAM reported.
