Criminal Law

In the United Arab Emirates (UAE), criminal law is a comprehensive legal framework that defines offences, prescribes penalties, and outlines the procedures for investigating and adjudicating criminal cases. The UAE legal system is based on a combination of Islamic law (Sharia) principles and civil law statutes. Criminal offences can range from minor infractions to serious felonies, with penalties varying based on the severity of the crime.

Criminal Law issues include:

Financial Crimes:

Such as fraud, embezzlement, and money laundering.

Drug Offences:

Involving the possession, trafficking, or distribution of illegal substances.

Assault and Violence:

Cases related to physical harm or threats against individuals.

Theft and Robbery:

Involving the unlawful taking of property with or without force.


Offences related to computer systems, data breaches, or online fraud.

White-Collar Crimes:

Including corruption, bribery, and other non-violent offences typically committed by professionals or public officials.
