Salah Al Jassmi, the brother of Emirati singer Hussein is determined to continue criticizing the Moroccan actress.
Rabat – Police in Dubai recently arrested Moroccan actress Mariam Hussein for not respecting COVID-19 preventive measures recommended by authorities.
Police arrested the actress after she organized several parties without respecting Dubai’s COVID-19 preventive measures, according to Emirati media.
The actress also shared videos from her parties, showing many guests without masks not respecting social distancing measures despite the recent surge in COVID-19 cases.
The Gulf country has reported over 84,916 cases, including 74,273 recoveries and 4,040 deaths, to date.
Emirati journalist and lawyer Saleh Al Jassmi, the brother of renowned singer Hussein Al Jassmi, slammed the actress on social networks after she shared videos from her parties.
In one of the videos, the journalist addressed his followers, saying: “Maybe you have noticed the increase of COVID-19 cases in the UAE lately… The country is not negligent… some people are being reckless, and over the past two days one of the social media celebrities held a birthday party with a large gathering… no masks… no social distancing… and nothing.”
He also wondered how long Mariam Hussein will remain “exempt from accountability and for how long will we remain silent about it?”
This is not the first time Mariam Hussein has faced arrest in the UAE. Video footage from a New Year’s Eve party in late 2017 showed Hussein allegedly dancing “provocatively” with American rapper Tyga.
Al Jasmi filed a case against the actress for her “offensive acts.”
Police then arrested Mariam Hussein in early 2018. She later received a two-month prison sentence.
In February 2020, the Moroccan actress posted a statement announcing that she was pardoned by the “state of justice and law.”
“I would like to thank my country, the United Arab Emirates. May this country grow more glorious and prosperous. I especially would like to thank our sovereign leaders and our sheikhs, the rulers of the state, who laid the foundations of justice and equality for all those who live in this nation which is dear to our hearts,” Mariam Hussein said after her pardon.
