The Abu Dhabi Public Prosecution has ordered the arrest of an Emirati motorist, pending investigation, for reckless driving in a European country, exposing himself and lives of others to danger.
The Public Prosecution explained that UAE law is applicable to every citizen who, during his travels abroad, commits an act that amounts to a crime according to the law of the UAE and that of the host country, in case he didn't stand trial there.
Investigations found that video clips circulated on social media showed the suspect conducting stunt driving and deliberately making loud noises to attract attention. The clips also showed the plate number of the car he was driving, which belonged to one of the Emirates in the UAE.
The Public Prosecution said that clip, which was filmed and published by the Emirati citizen himself, had gone viral in social media.
