DUBAI: A UAE court has condemned two individuals, including a TV columnist, to two years detainment over a “manufactured” report on the Covid-19 passings of five individuals from one family, state media said on Thursday.

An examination concerning the report, broadcasted on the Abu Dhabi Sports Channel, immediately verified that it was bogus, specialists said in August. “This occurrence adversely influenced society, burdened individuals from the network and left them in a mess and dread of the episode,” examiners said at that point.

As indicated by legitimate news organization WAM, “the Abu Dhabi Federal Court of Appeal condemned two respondents to two years in jail subsequent to sentencing them for broadcasting a created tale about the passing of five individuals from a similar family from Covid-19.”
