The UAE Public Prosecution on Monday explained, through a post on its social media accounts, the penalty for the possession of money earned through drug dealing.

The Public Prosecution explained that, under Article No. 65 of Federal Decree-Law No. 30 of 2021 on Combatting Narcotics and Psychotropic Substances, any person who possesses, conceals or deals with money earned by dealing drugs shall be imprisoned and fined not less than Dhs100,000, provided there exists enough evidence to proof the money's links to drug dealing.

These posts are part of the Public Prosecution's continuous efforts to promote legal culture among members of the community and increase their awareness about the latest legislations in the country.
