" Muslim Brotherhood tweeters who insulted Emiratis defending their nation on the social network should be prosecuted, Lt Gen Dahi Khalfan Tamim, Chief of Dubai Police, said. Lt Gen Dahi yesterday called on the federal attorney general to take legal action against the group of tweeters from the Muslim Brotherhood who had described Emiratis as barking persons. "Some Emirati citizens, who were defending the UAE and its rulers against verbal insults and negative criticism, have been called nabbeeha [barking persons]. I call on the country's top member of the judiciary to take legal action against that faction of tweeters, who abused our nation and leaders. Is defending someone's nation or ruler considered barking?" Lt Gen Dahi told an audience of lawyers and members of the judiciary yesterday."
