An Asian man has been arrested by Dubai Police for posting an offensive video online.

Authorities confirmed that legal action is being taken against the man after he taunted police officers on duty in an edited clip online.

According to Dubai Police, the man added emojis “for the purpose of making fun and sarcasm” and posted the video on social media.

Police said the man has been referred to the competent authorities for further legal action.

Earlier this week an Asian man was arrested for promoting fake news, while last month a European personal trainer was arrested on Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) after posting a video urging people to ignore restrictions and visit the beach; another European of Asian descent was arrested for encouraging people to ignore the social distancing rules.

Dubai Police has urged members of the public to report any breaches to the Police Eye service available on its app, or to the e-crime.ae platform.

Meanwhile, Dubai Police has revealed they recently arrested a young Asian man who had posted a clip on social media of himself using heroin and taunting the local security forces.
