Major Yousef Hassan Al Hammadi, from the Anti-Narcotics Directorate at Abu Dhabi Police, called on families to monitor anonymous email messages that reach their children from phone numbers outside the country, urging the public not to interact with these messages, and to report them by calling the “Aman Service.”

She stated that the anti-drug elements play their role around the clock, in protecting society from its clutches and confronting it efficiently and effectively, and in various modern ways and means, and they succeeded in striking the schemes of drug dealers who do not hesitate to use all criminal methods, in order to leak their toxins into society, targeting young people. .

On the other hand, the authorities concerned with drug control are keen to develop their methods, so the Abu Dhabi Police were keen to support the Anti-Narcotics Directorate with modern methods and advanced technological means, to track the gangs and thwart their attempts to smuggle drugs.

And she warned of the danger of opening and managing personal bank accounts by other people, explaining that the security and financial authorities in the country warn against using the financial account for illegal acts without the knowledge of the account holder, as Articles 64 and 65 of Federal Law No. 30 of 2021 regarding follow-up to narcotic substances stipulate. And psychotropic substances with imprisonment or a fine of no less than 50,000 for each person who deposited, transferred or accepted the diversion himself or through others, with the aim of committing any of the offenses of abuse or personal use of narcotics or psychotropic substances stipulated in the law, and Article 65 increased the penalty to imprisonment and a fine of no less than 100,000 dirhams for anyone who possesses, conceals, or performs a money transfer, when there is sufficient evidence to condemn him.
