Dubai: Dubai Police arrested 79 people for violating public decency and ethics at Dubai's beaches, a police report said.

The arrests came after Dubai Police stepped up campaigns at Dubai's coasts to crackdown on those who violate decency rules and public manners, as well as to protect beach goers and preserve their privacy.

Police are urging people who witness any lewd or indecent act in public to immediately contact police at No. 04/6099888, 04/2036499, or 04/2661228.

Meanwhile, police arrested five people who were working as tourist guides without licence.

Major General Khamis Mattar Al Mazeina, Acting Chief of Dubai Police, said the campaigns against people luring tourists also resulted in the arrest of 10 infiltrators who organised desert safaris for tourists.

Major General Al Mazeina said the tourist security department monitored some people who used their private vehicles to transfer tourists from hotels and spas and organised tourist trips for them in agreement with some employees at those places for a commission.

He said such crimes affect tourism companies as well as the tourists because safari vehicles are equipped for desert atmosphere and the guides are well qualified.

Police are urging those who witness any lewd or indecent act in public to immediately contact police at Nos 04/6099888, 04/2036499, or 04/2661228.
