Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - Saudi Gazette report

ABU DHABI — A man has been arrested in the United Arab Emirates for making racist comments, state news agency WAM reported late Wednesday.

The video, which went viral on social media platforms drawing ire from the users, purports to show the man making derogatory statements about Bangladeshi workers.

“The Federal Investigations office of the Public Prosecution noticed a video of the accused being circulated online, which sought to create divisions based on ethnicity and nationality among the various communities living in the UAE. The video was particularly offensive to one community,” the SPA quoted a statement from the Public Prosecution.

The remarks made in the video were found to be an affront to the UAE and its efforts to disseminate the values of tolerance, besides violating the UAE’s foundational principles of justice and equality, the statement added.

A spokesperson for the Federal Public Prosecution said that the accused was under investigation and that the legal process was underway to try him for the crime, the report said.

The spokesperson, meanwhile, warned all social media users to adhere to the law of the land and to respect its primary values that stress on respect for all. He also asked people not to sow seeds of division among people in the name of ethnicity, religion, language or gender.

"These are our fundamentals and no infringement on them will be tolerated," he added, according to the report.
