If convicted of kidnapping in Dubai you may face severe penalties and punishments depending on the charge. Simple kidnapping will result in a 4 to 15-year prison sentence.

Homicide and Manslaughter


In Dubai, homicide is an act that results in the death of another human being. Criminal homicide can be caused by several factors. Typically criminal homicide is due to intentional or unintentional, premeditated, reckless or careless behavior on the part of another. 


Types of crimes involving homicide include:


1st degree Murder:

A homicide committed intentionally with premeditation or malice aforethought, the punishment is death penalty.



Manslaughter is defined as the crime of killing another human being without premeditation and without prior planning. Manslaughter can be voluntary or involuntary. It is considered voluntary manslaughter when an intentional killing of another human being takes place. It is determined to be involuntary murder when the death of another is unintentional. Vehicular manslaughter is a form of involuntary manslaughter that is an unintentional killing, which takes place while a person is driving recklessly or is under the influence of alcohol or drugs. A manslaughter charge is taken very seriously in Dubai and can have very harsh consequences. The penalties that may result due to a manslaughter conviction include:


  • Jail sentence

  •  Harsh fines

  •  Forfeiture of your driver’s license

  • “Strike” on your criminal record for life


Voluntary Manslaughter

The intentional killing of a human being when the defendant had no prior intent to kill. The penalty in this case is from 3 to 15 year in jail or life imprisonment, but the punishment is elevated to death penalty in the following instances:


  • If the murder committed linked to another crime.

  • If the victim is a government employee killed during his duties.

  • If the victim is a one of the parents.

  • If the murder committed with poisonous or explosive substance  


Involuntary Manslaughter:

The unintentional killing of a human being.


Vehicular Manslaughter:

A death that is unintentional and is the result of reckless driving, such as DUI.
