Electronic Document Forgery Punishment and its use in the UAE Law

In the twentieth century, the IT systems developed rapidly until it became known as the “digital age.” With this rapid development, the hackers of these systems worked in parallel to develop their skills to penetrate these systems and break its protections, either for personal or material purposes.
Therefore, it was necessary to prepare and codify laws that criminalize such acts in the field of information technology and determine the penalties imposed for each crime. The Federal Law No. 5 of 2012 was issued in respect of information technology crimes, through which the legislator ensured the protection of electronic systems, the websites and electronic documents, The first Article of the said Law defines the electronic document as follows; A computer record or data to be established, stored, extracted, copied, sent, notified or received by electronic means through a mediator.
In this case, the criminal commits a forgery crime for an electronic document in order to claim a capacity he does not hold, or obtaining amounts of money when he possesses the forged document, which considered as violation of the rights of individuals as well as government entities. This criminal act will not be easy for the actor, as states in Article No. 6 of the said Law:”:
“Shall be punished by temporary imprisonment and a fine not less than one hundred and fifty thousand dirhams and not exceed seven hundred and fifty thousand dirham whoever commits forgery of any electronic document of the federal or local government or authorities or federal or local public establishments.
The punishment shall be both imprisonment and a fine not less than one hundred thousand dirhams and not exceed three hundred thousand dirhams or either of these two penalties if the forged documents belong to an authority other than those mentioned in paragraph one of this Article. “

As it reveals from the text of the aforementioned Article that the legislator criminalized the forgery act of an electronic document and determines the penalty of imprisonment and a fine or either the two penalties. However, the legislator has severe the penalty in the event that the document is issued by an official authority/ body, as states in Article No. 6 : “Shall be punished by the same penalty decided for the crime of forgery, as the case may be, whoever uses this forged electronic document with his knowledge that the document is forged”.

The aforementioned is indicating the wisdom of the UAE legislator, whereas the aim is to ensure the security of individuals and companies and safeguard their rights.
