The Article also orders an imprisonment period not exceeding five years, and a fine of AED500,000 to AED1 million for anyone managing a website with the aim to stimulate hate.
For first-time offenders, the court may rule for the accused to be placed under electronic probation and monitoring, and prevented from using information technology means during a period not exceeding the maximum penalty prescribed, it added.
Article No 28 stipulates a punishment of temporary imprisonment and a fine not in excess of AED1 million for anyone establishing a website with intent to incite acts which may endanger the national security or attacks on any member of the judicial courts system.
