The prosecutor general, Salem Said Kabish, said an unspecified number of people were being questioned for having formed "a group aimed at damaging the security of the state," the official news agency WAM reported.
It said they were also suspected of "rejecting the constitution and the founding principles of power in the Emirates" and of having links with foreign organisations.
Kabish said they were being questioned to determine "the nature of the plot."
