News update: Covid-19 in UAE: I have move permit but got flashed by radar

Posted on Updated on

Can you walk alone, or drive to and from work before 8pm? Here are the answers.

Several readers wrote to Khaleej Times, seeking clarity on the UAE attorney-general’s resolution about fines and penalties against violators of the Covid-19 coronavirus measures. We posed some of these questions to Emirati lawyer Abdul Moneim Bin Suwaidan of Bin Suwaidan Firm for Advocates and Legal Counsels.

Q. I have a move permit and got flashed by radars while driving. What do I do?
The radar flashes on any car. But the fines are later cancelled for move permit holders.

Q. If I don’t work in an essential sector, will I be fined for driving to and from work before 8pm?
People stepping out for work purposes are not fined. They need to present a proof, a document of that.

Q. Do I have to get a movement permit to go to the supermarket in the day time?
Movement permits are required during the sterilisation process timings.

Q. If I get fined for a violation, should I pay it immediately to the police?
There is a special prosecution handling such cases. One is summoned there and he can also object (to the fine).
