A group of women have been arrested for stripping nude while posing on a balcony in broad daylight.
A viral video showed 15 female models apparently doing a naked photoshoot while being filmed by a man in a tall building while overlooking the skyscrapers of Dubai, UAE.
The Sun UK reported that the naked photoshoot was actually a publicity stunt for an Israeli website. Although no specific details were revealed, the site is believed to be a version of a US adult website. The incident has shocked those living in the United Arab Emirates as people can be put behind bars simply for displaying lewd behaviour. This includes kissing in public and consuming alcohol without a license.
Following complaints from the public, Dubai police have since arrested the individuals connected to the raunchy photoshoot on charges of public debauchery. According to the public decency law, those arrested might now face up to 6 months in prison and a fine of around 5,000 dirham (~RM5600). “Such unacceptable behaviours do not reflect the values and ethics of Emirati society,” said the police in a statement.
