Dubai, United Arab Emirates: An individual in Dubai faced a fine of 100,000 Dirham (Rs 20,30,508) for posting tweets against a group and its manager. The penalty was imposed on the individual on Friday, citing that the posts he posted were offensive for the company and its reputation, as per the local media.
