An official said on Tuesday that a social media influencer in Dubai was arrested for smoking a hashish cigarette in a live broadcast on his Instagram account.

The man, who presented himself as an Emirati model was deported after Dubai Police noticed the live broadcast while smoking hashish and wearing Emirati national dress said Major-General Khalil Ebrahim Al Mansouri, Assistant Commander-in-Chief for Criminal Investigation Affairs, said

“Officers at the Anti-Narcotic Department in Dubai Police monitor the online platforms around the clock. We arrested the resident who presented himself as an Emirati while he was smoking a hashish cigarette live over his Instagram account,” said Al Mansouri. “He thought that his fame will protect him but he was deported for his crime.”

“Dubai Police stands against such people who encourage youngsters and teenagers to break laws and our traditions,” said Al Mansouri.

“There is a strong connection between reviewing pictures and videos of consuming drugs and addiction, especially if there are celebrities promoting it on social media. It will tempt youngsters to try the drugs,” added Al Mansouri.

 “They should believe in the capability of Hemaya International Centre at Dubai Police in embracing such conditions. We provide all kind of support and maintain their privacy.”
