The Abu Dhabi Court of First Instance ordered an Arab college student to pay Dh5,000 fine for taking pictures in restricted areas.

According to Khaleej Times, the student filed an appeal to the Appeal Court, stating that he did not know the area was restricted and photography was his hobby.

He also asked the Appeal Court to return both his Dh5,000 fine that was intended for his tuition money as well as the camera that authorities seized from him.

However, the court did not buy his appeal as a legal principle upholds that a person who is unaware of a law may not escape liability for violating that law.

In the UAE, taking photos of sensitive sites such as military sites, palaces, courts, embassies, and airports is forbidden due to safety concerns.
