Dubai Police broke up a house party held in breach of Covid-19 rules.

Guests were found to have failed to abide by safety measures such as social distancing.

The organiser of the event was fined Dh50,000, and guests ordered to pay Dh15,000 each.

Police, in partnership with Dubai Tourism, have in recent days clamped down on those caught flouting Covid-19 regulations.

On Monday, police said they had broken up a desert camp party at which safety rules were breached.

The camp operator was fined Dh50,000 and each guest had to pay Dh15,000.

Video footage released by Dubai Media office showed a large stage and strobe lighting darting into the sky.

On the previous day, police revealed they had imposed Dh50,000 fines on the organisers of a yacht party in Dubai.

Several people incurred financial penalties after ignoring social distancing regulations and failing to ensure masks were worn during the gathering, Dubai Media Office said.

The yacht operator’s licence was suspended for a month.
