  • Fines
  • Victim restitution order
  • Parole
  • A permanent mark on your criminal record
  • It can also lead to loss of employment and a damaged reputation
  • Deportation

Homicide Charges

These range from unintentional homicide or manslaughter charges to first degree murder charges, in which the killing was intentional.


Killing is a crime of murdering another human, and it is divided into manslaughter, which is committed without criminal intent, premeditation, or previous surveillance and identification, and willful killing in which the murderer has intended to commit the crime.

A common type of involuntary manslaughter is vehicular manslaughter, where a person accidentally kills another while driving recklessly or under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Such charges can have very harsh penalties in Dubai, including:

  • A prison term of up to 15 years, which can be upgraded to life in aggravating circumstances such as if the homicide was linked to another crime.
  • Hefty fines
  • Forfeiture of driver's license
  • Such crimes are stated in criminal record of the sentenced.
  • Judge has a discretionary authority on applying Deportation in such crimes.
