Is Coulomb's law valid in a non-inertial frame?

Hi,
I was wondering, if the charges do not move in a non inertial frame and I don't move too in this frame, will I see the same Coulomb force, some fictitious forces and radiation coming from these static charges?
Thanks!

just a distorted Coulomb force field
Note that the distorted field means that Coulomb’s law is not valid. So the short but correct answer to the OP’s question is “no”.
