UAE warns people from publishing sympathy towards Qatar

The United Arab Emirates has banned people from publishing expressions of sympathy towards Qatar and will punish offenders with a jail term of up to 15 years, the UAE-based newspaper Gulf News and pan-Arab channel Al-Arabiya have reported. Al Shamsi claimed the decision to ban “favoritism towards Qatar” came in an attempt to “protect UAE’s national security, its supreme interests and interests of its people.”

The Federal Public Prosecution also announced that according to the Federal Penal Code and the Federal law decree on Combating Information Technology Crimes, anyone who threaten the interests, national unity and stability of the UAE will face a jail term from three to 15 years, and a fine not less than AED 500,000 ($136,000).
