In the UAE and Dubai, criminal law is enacted into the federal law system. This uses numerous areas of Islamic Sharia law as its basis. Unlike civil law that focuses mainly on individuals, organizations, and the occurrences between them, criminal law is concerned with criminal offenses. Typical examples include road traffic offenses, assault, robbery, fraud, murder, criminal damage, and many other crimes.
