Dubai Police and Dubai Tourism have raided yet another crowded yacht party and fined the organiser AED 50,000 for breaking COVID-19 safety rules.

Every participant at the event received a fine of AED 15,000 each, while the licence of the yacht operator has been suspended.

The event violated the social distancing and precautionary measures to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

The video of the party has been posted by Dubai Media Office on Twitter.

In early February, authorities had busted a yacht party, and handed out hefty fines for flouting COVID-19 safety protocols.
