The Public Prosecution charged the officer with breaching the privacy of Messi, posting the video and pictures on Snapchat and making inappropriate comments. The officer will be tried under Federal Penal Code.
Messi was in Dubai to attend the opening of the 10th edition of the Dubai Sports Conference.
