AUSTRALIAN JAILED IN ABU DHABI FOR FACEBOOK POST

Human rights groups warn against social media use in the United Arab Emirates following arrest of Aussie expat last month 
Several people have been arrested for their posts on social media sites 
Australian artist reportedly jailed for writing 'bad words about a person' 
Laws targeting 'Cyber Crimes' were first enacted in the UAE in 2012 
Under these laws, it's an offence to criticise the state or citizens online 




HOW THE EMIRATES BAN CAMERAS

According to article 168 of the UAE Penal Code, anyone caught taking pictures of palaces, embassies and security facilities can be sentenced to up to five years in jail and receive a hefty fine.

Three years ago, an Iranian tourist was sentenced to a month behind bars for taking photos of the presidential palace - after languishing in jail for three months before the verdict.

And an Indian man was fined nearly $300 for photographing planes taking off from Abu Dhabi airport.


Chief Justice Shehab al Hammadi of the State Security Court said at the time that ignorance of the law was no defense.


An Emirati court last year sentenced eight people, including an American, to up to a year in prison for their role in producing a satirical video about youth culture in Dubai that prosecutors said defamed the country's image.


The American, Shezanne Cassim, was released within weeks of the verdict, after having already serving nine months behind bars.
