Publishing Pictures of Women Without their Consent is an Offence


Publishing pictures of women without their approval is an offence.

The UAE Ministry of Interior has recently reasserted women’s right to privacy by stating that publishing pictures of women without their approval is an offence that can be sanctioned by a fine, or worse, by jail. The statement made by the Ministry of Interior was specifically aimed at people taking pictures at weddings and private parties and then publishing them on the internet. Not only is publishing the pictures an offence, but taking pictures and showing them to other people is also considered as an offence by UAE Ministry of Interior.

Indeed, this is considered as a violation of one’s right to privacy. Therefore, the acts of taking pictures, showing them to other people or publishing them require the approval of the person appearing on the picture.
