Omani police warn users against sending inaccurate messages

The Royal Oman Police (ROP) has said knowingly circulating inaccurate text messages through smartphone apps is a punishable offence with up to one year in jail or a fine of up to OR1,000, or both, Muscat Daily has reported. This comes after the ROP noted an increase in the circulation of such messages with more and more people using applications like WhatsApp and Viber. "The punishment is applicable to whoever using telecoms devices to send a message that may cause damages to a person or affect any device, and also to the person who uses the devices to send out messages that violate the system of public order knowingly," said an ROP official.
