Dubai: Police in Ajman have arrested a Gulf national for allegedly recording and posting a video online, depicting a violent crime scene where two men died.
Ajman Police said the arrest was in connection to a video circulating on social media in the aftermath of a reported sword fight that left two young Emiratis dead on Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road recently.
Three men from the Comoros Island were arrested in less than 12 hours after the incident, according to Colonel Abdullah Saif Al Matrooshi, Director of the Police Operations Department at Ajman Police.
Police said the suspect claimed to have taken the video, in order to show policemen performing their duty.
However, the suspect’s voice could be clearly heard as he described the incident and the victim’s injuries.
The Gulf national, according to police, was arrested on charges of “assaulting privacy using an IT device.”
