This announcement was made on Sunday, January 23, through social media platforms. The UAE Public Prosecution took Twitter and stated that the authorities from the narcotics bureau could collect the samples for the narcotics and psychotropic drugs from any of the residents after gaining permission from the public prosecutor.

It further mentioned that permission would be only given if it is found that the sample collection is really important for gathering the evidence.

The tweet by the Public Prosecution read, “If a person declines to give a sample for the narcotics and psychotropic drug test, without justification, he/ she would be sentenced to imprisonment for a duration of not less than two years and fined a monetary penalty of Dh100,000, under the Article 63 of the Federal Decree – Law No. 30 of 2021, for combating narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances.”

According to the late 2021 drug trend in UAE, drug related crimes have to witness an ever-increasing hike in the Emirates. The statics from that period reflects that every one out of the eight crimes have occurred because of the drug.

New rules were delivered to protect an individual and families from the permanent damages; the added provisions allow the court to exchange the punishment imposed on an offender with rehabilitation treatment in the specialised units established under the laws.
