Dh100,000 fine for breaking this Ramadan law in UAE

The law was issued last year to end this illegal practice during Ramadan.

This Ramadan, UAE residents are urged to be wary of not only the dos and don'ts of the holy month, but also be mindful of the anti-begging Federal Law.

Last year, the UAE has passed an anti-begging Federal Law, which punishes anyone caught begging in the country with a Dh5,000 fine and up to three months in prison, announced the Federal National Council (FNC).

The new law, which came ahead of the holy month, aimed to put an end to beggary.

Those who operate gangs of beggars will get a prison sentence of not less than six months as well as a minimum fine of Dh100,000. Similar punishments will be given to those who recruit workers as beggars.
