One year jail, Dh20,000 fine for failing to report suspicious injury or death
September 16, 2021

Dubai: Doctors and healthcare providers in the UAE are obligated to report to the relevant authorities if they suspect that the case of a death or injury may be suspicious or as a result of a crime. If not, they can be sentenced to up to a year’s jail term and/or a fine of not less than Dh20,000.

The UAE Public Prosecution has raised awareness on Article 273 of the UAE Law No. 3 (1987) Federal Penal Code through its official social media channels, which stipulates this penalty for failure to report such injuries or deaths.

The UAE Penal Code emphasizes on the importance of reporting any criminal activity to the relevant authorities. For example, Article 274 of the UAE Law No. 3 (1987) Federal Penal Code stipulates that a person who fails to report a criminal offence is liable to prosecution.
