A group of individuals were arrested in Abu Dhabi after reportedly raping a woman, filming the crime and sharing the clip on social media, the attorney-general of the UAE said on Thursday.

It was a shocking crime that prompted an urgent probe. The Federal Investigation Office swung into action, tracked down the suspects, and had warrants issued for their arrest — in a matter of hours. The Abu Dhabi Police nabbed the suspects on the same day.

Dr Hamad Saif Al Shamsi, the country’s attorney-general, is now personally supervising the investigation. Such a crime is extremely unacceptable, he stressed, assuring that justice will be served.

He added while such a shocking crime is rare in the UAE, the public prosecution and the rest of the authorities spare no effort in protecting the community.
