Dubai to deport group over nude photo shoot

The emirate of Dubai announces it will deport a number of people arrested for public debauchery after a naked photo shoot.

Photos and video footage posted online last week showed at least 18 foreign women posing naked in an apartment in the Dubai Marina area.

“The public prosecution office has completed investigations on a recently publicised photo shoot, which contravened UAE law,” the Dubai Media Office says in a tweet.

“The individuals involved will be deported from the United Arab Emirates. No further comment shall be made on the matter.”

Dubai police issued a statement on Saturday that a group of people who appeared in an “indecent video” shared online were arrested.

It warned that such behavior was “unacceptable” and did “not reflect the values and ethics of Emirati society.”
