Hundreds warned in Abu Dhabi for posting illegal adverts
Posting unlicensed adverts is punishable with a fine between Dh1,000 to Dh10,000
Abu Dhabi City Municipality has warned that posting unlicensed posters and advertisements carries a fine of up to Dh10,000.
The municipality issued 717 warnings and removed 33 unlicensed adverts so far this year as part of an ongoing campaign.
The offence is punishable by a fine of Dh1,000 to Dh10,000, according to the General Appearance Law 2 of 2012 and the Preservation of the Public Places Regulation.
Advertisements and posters, whether placed by individuals or companies, distort the appearance of the city, the municipality said.
The municipality plans to spread awareness through social media, majlis lectures and community forums.
