Group of models from scandalous NAKED high-rise photoshoot in Dubai will avoid prison & be deported from UAE, authorities say

Group of models from scandalous NAKED high-rise photoshoot in Dubai will avoid prison & be deported from UAE, authorities say
A group of models who were photographed naked on a balcony in Dubai will be deported from the UAE after authorities opted not to send them to prison. They were facing six months behind bars under the country's lewd behavior laws.

On Sunday evening, a video of more than a dozen women posing in the nude went viral on social media when a resident of a Dubai skyscraper filmed the group from another building in the posh Marina neighborhood. 

Shortly after, the local police department revealed on Twitter that they had all been arrested for lewd actions and debauchery, and were facing a six-month jail term or a fine of 5000 dirhams ($1,300). 

"Dubai Police warns against such unacceptable behaviors which do not reflect the values and ethics of Emirati society," the police said.

A few days later, the Dubai government's media office revealed that the girls would be spared prison, and would simply be deported from the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

While the full list of the group's nationality hasn't been released, statements from diplomats in the country suggest that 12 of the arrested girls were from Ukraine, with the photographer coming from Russia. Previously, online outlets reported that the entire group came from former Soviet Union nations, including Belarus and Moldova.
