Youths charged with cyber crime and drug offences reduced this year in UAE


Spelling good news for the United Arab Emirates, the number of youths charged with cyber crimes and drug offences has more than halved in the past year.

While the authorities are not having any specific  figures but prosecutors say the drop in online crimes and drug charges is caused by better knowledge among people aged under 18 about what constitutes a crime, partly due to a campaign by the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department.

“We reached out to 3,000 students last year and made them aware of possible slips and breaches of the law they could commit in everyday life,” said Mohammed Al Dhanhani, the head of Baniyas public prosecution and former head of family prosecution in Abu Dhabi.
