Is getting into trouble with the law in Dubai for smaller matters even half as easy to get into as the media is portraying it to be?
I went to Dubai a few times years ago and it seemed very liberal compared to what I expected, infact nobody seemed intimidated of anything at all, and the law enforcement there seemed to be doing a really good job in what they do
yet, everyone is still hearing on the media about people being arrested in Dubai for smaller crimes like a kiss on the cheek etc in what Dubai is being portrayed to be a strict place
however, I dont think the concern is so much being arrested in Dubai as such as being put into a cell overnight and the police interview you at the station after taking your DNA samples (this can happen anywhere), I think is far more about being arbitrary arrested whilst being put on bail and then something gets twisted that you done something wrong that makes Dubai a strict place and landing people in real trouble
Am I correct on this?
Thank you for all answers
