Trafficking and running drugs and psychotropic substances using information technology means
(according to cybercrime law no. 5 of 2012)
Drugs control case are considered one of the biggest changelings facing the government nationally, regionally and internationally, drugs control includes all dealing, running and abusing drugs.
The United Arab Emirates facing continues operations to bring narcotic substances for several reasons which is being closer to narcotic substances producing countries, and the active air traffic, maritime navigations.
the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances law no. 14 of 1995 amended by code no. 8 of 2016 stated that the narcotic substances are every natural substance or composed substances stated in the tables no. (1), (2), (3), (4) attached with the that code.
as article no. 6 of the law stated that:
1. It is restricted to bring, export, import, manufacturing, extraction, separation, production, possession, getting and abuse drugs and narcotic substances stated in tables no. (1), (2), (4) and (5) and all other actions and activities related to it.
2. We may have performed medical supervision and scientific researches on the mentioned substances with the knowledge of authorized scientific entities that determined by a decision from minister of health, according to procedures and conditions that determined by a decision from the council of ministers at the request of minister of health.
In that regard we will speak about the subject of media advertising of Trafficking drugs therefore article no. (44) repeated of the code stated that:
Anyone who will produce or export or import or possesses or deal, with the intention to promote for goods or prints that hold pictures, or drawing or writing or ideas that lead to commit crimes from crimes happens under the influence of drugs and narcotic substances stated in the law, and in all cases the prints will be confiscated. Will be subject to a fine not less than (50.000) fifty thousand dirhams.
With the evolution of the modern communications, internet, and information technology, the drugs dealers have been closer to wider sector that use modern technology and social media and that captured the attention Emirati legislator, the federal law of information technology crimes of United Arab Emirates no.5 of 2012 stated that the sanction of create or operate a website or spread an information to deal with drugs or narcotic substance in article no. 36 provided that:
Anyone who will operate, create a website, supervise or publish Information on his information web or technical information means for Trafficking and running drugs or narcotic substance, ما فى حكمها or the way to abuse or facilitate handling with it in circumstances other than those permitted in law shall be subject to temporary imprisonment as a sanction or a fine not less than fifty thousand dirhams and not exceed one million dirhams.
It seemed to be aggravating the sanction of Trafficking and running drugs through virtual reality because trafficking and running drugs attract a large number from all ages.
The dark-net or dark-web consider to be perfect to attracts the drug mafias because it is hard to track them down and they work in complete prohibition without tracking from the security authorities.
And this dark-web found in non-legal websites which it is impossible to access in it through standard net browser like chromo, Firefox or any other well-known browser like google, yahoo that never shows from the content expect the outside or 16% of web content.
And the dark-net used in non-legal activities like Trafficking and running drugs and psychotropic substance and products are presented to dark-net users through encrypted electronic stores like “silk road “and they don’t get paid through bank accounts that could be tracked by government but through encrypted electronic currency like “batkwen “or by delivering the drugs to the buyer through a third party secretly with extra money.
Trafficking and running drugs would be through fake accounts around the social media, so we must publish the warning and awareness of Trafficking and running drugs through the internet because its victims a step away from danger and most of the victims are the youth and teenagers that depends on the internet and social media consistently.
community awareness considered the base to face the danger, and the legal regulation must be developed to criminalize who is responsible for it and who is involved in, and there must be national, regional and international cooperation in follow and trading information to limit the spread of this dark-web.
