A group of women have been arrested in Dubai after appearing naked on a balcony.

As per a video shared on Twitter, some women posed naked on the balcony of their penthouse apartment on the Dubai Marina. Dubai has strict laws against anything classified as news, hence a complaint was lodged against them on the basis of the footage. The act is punishable by a fine, as well as a custodial sentence.

The Dubai police responded to the complaint immediately. They issued a statement reacting to the incident, which read, “A criminal case has been registered against the arrested, and they have been referred to Public Prosecution for further legal action.

"Dubai Police warns against such unacceptable behaviors, which do not reflect the values and ethics of Emirati society."

Conventionally, in the UAE, the punishment for engaging in lewd behavior is up to six months in prison and a fine of 5,000 AED (£985), with police warning about making and publishing 'pornographic material' online, which includes those sharing the images. It’s not known how the women have been apprehended, as the identities and the sentence are being kept confidential owing to privacy concerns.

For now, sources maintain that the group of women arrested included eleven Ukrainian nationals and a Russian national. Both the Ukrain consulate and Russian media have verified the news. The Ukrainian consulate says it will visit the women on Tuesday. Russian media reports that the incident occurred during a shoot which was organized by a Russian photographer, whereas, Dubai news portals claim that the act was a publicity stunt. The police are probing further into the incident.
