A group of more than a dozen women have been arrested in Dubai on charges of indecent exposure and shooting on balcony of a flat.
According to the international news agency, foreign young women took pictures and videos of themselves naked on the balcony of a flat in the Marina area of Dubai and uploaded them on social media. The women were arrested for allegedly posing nude in a public place.
Eight of the women arrested are from Russia. In this regard, the Russian consulate says that these allegations are serious and bring the country into disrepute.
In the UAE, nude shooting or sexual harassment in public places is punishable by up to six months in prison and a fine of 5,000 dirhams, while a photo shoot organizer can be sentenced to 18 months in prison.
