DUBAI // Dubai’s police chief has urged the establishment of a task force to monitor all internet activity and bring to justice anyone found distributing illicit material.
The task force would comprise members of Dubai’s Public Prosecution Service, Dubai Police and the telecoms providers Etisalat and du, Lt Gen Chief Dahi Khalfan Tamim said.
“Etisalat and du have the power to know who sent what to who over BlackBerry, iPhone or the internet. What we need is to set up a mechanism to find the illicit material being distributed and track down its source, then take legal action by police and prosecutors.
“I would like Etisalat and du to present a team to work with us and the prosecutor’s office after Eid to take this forward.”
