A number of expatriates have been arrested by Royal Oman Police after videos of them tossing their Oman resident cards were circulated on social media.

The police said on Twitter on Monday (16 Sep) that the videos showed the men throwing away the cards and using offensive language.

Meanwhile, legal actions will be taken against them.

In March, an expat of Asian nationality was also detained for “disrespecting the Omani currency”.

Social media users in Oman circulated a video of the man, which shows him allegedly throwing Omani rial notes on the floor.

The ROP said he was found in North Al Sharqiyah Governorate and legal actions have been taken against him.
