Essam Issa Al Humaidan, Attorney General of Dubai, announced Tuesday that all individuals involved in a recent naked photo shoot will be deported from the United Arab Emirates, the Associated Press reports.

Dubai police arrested at least 11 Ukrainian women and a male Russian photographer Sunday for their involvement in a nude photo shoot in broad daylight on the balcony of a high-rise apartment building in the upscale neighborhood of Marina. They were charged with public debauchery and producing pornography. Ukrainian and Russian authorities confirmed that their citizens had been arrested.

Their behavior was in clear violation of the UAE’s public decency law, which carries a sentence of up to six months in prison, and a $1,360 fine. An investigation was launched after their arrest, but ended fairly quickly with a deportation ruling.

Footage of the photo shoot, which a local newspaper suspects was a “publicity stunt,” was shared online Saturday. Dubai police attempted to discourage people from passing around the videos by threatening them with a punishment similar to those engaged in the indecent clip. “Such unacceptable behaviors do not reflect the values and ethics of Emirati society,” police said in a statement.

The case has since been referred to the Public Prosecution where further legal action could be taken.

Dubai police often turn a blind eye to foreigners misbehaving, until they don’t.
