Saudi Arabia: Snapchat stars fined SR 400,000

Riyadh: The General Commission for Audio Visual Media (GCAM) in Saudi Arabia on Sunday penalised two female Snapchat stars for allegedly defaming a friendly country.

The Commission has summoned the Snapchat celebrities for posting a video, offending a friendly country. A penalty is to be imposed on the offenders as prescribed in the media content control and audio-visual media law.

The law states that no such content shall be published, due to which Saudi Arabia’s relations with its allies are hampered. The authority has also emphasised the need to abide by the media regulation guidelines.
