Abu Dhabi Judicial Department
The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD) took action on Saturday by issuing a significant notice to address a circulating "money deposit" message and an accompanying audio recording that have been circulating on various social media platforms.
Confirmation of Authenticity The ADJD confirmed the authenticity of a letter attributed to the department, which outlined the deposit of specific sums of money in execution files sent to the designated beneficiary. The department clarified that the deposited amount was determined based on accurate data recorded in its electronic system.
False audio recording The ADJD, however, firmly asserted that the audio recording that accompanied the message was "misleading and unfounded" and did not concern the deposit beneficiary. The department made it clear that the audio recording wasn't supposed to be connected to the formal deposit notification.
Urging Responsible Behavior The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department appealed to the public, urging them to refrain from spreading rumors and false information. It stressed the importance of responsible communication and warned that legal actions would be taken against the individual responsible for disseminating the misleading audio recording.
Legal Consequences in the UAE The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has strict laws against sharing rumors and false, misleading information. Such actions are considered serious offenses in the UAE and can result in significant penalties, including fines of up to Dh200,000 and imprisonment.
These legal measures are designed to maintain public order and prevent the spread of false information that may cause unwarranted panic or confusion among the public.
