This week, some reports of crime occurred in the Emirate which was denied by Ajman Police to be fake.
The Saudi based newspaper Okaz, on their website reported of crime that a mother committed suicide with her children, while a man also beat his wife in a separate case.
According to the police, these kinds of accidents did not occur at all. After further investigation, it was found that Okaz’s website had been hacked with the news including adverts for the Saudi Stock Exchange, Tadawul.
The deputy director of the Criminal Investigations Department, Major Mohammad Bin Yafour Al Ghafli in cooperation with the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) blocked the links of the website. According to the UAE cybercrime law, if anyone caught publishing rumors or fake news he would be punished, officials said.
