Visitors to Dubai at “great risk” of being jailed under “cybercrime laws” that affect whatsapp, face

In the UAE, before you say anything online, you should consider whether or not you would be comfortable saying it in front of the police; because in Dubai, you basically are.. British national Yaseen Killick discovered recently that angry texting can wind you up in jail in Dubai in an instant. After having been apparently cheated by an unscrupulous used car dealer, Killick messaged the man to vent his dissatisfaction, asking him “how do you sleep at night…?” Yaseen was seized at Dubai airport as him and his wife, Robyn, headed home for Christmas 2017. He was arrested and served 3 weeks in prison before being kicked out of Dubai. Because Yaseen’s exchange with the car dealer occurred through

Brit Jonathan Castle one of thousands stuck in Dubai homelessness nightmare surviving on handouts be

Jonathan Castle, 59 was born in London but raised in Thurso, near Caithness in the far North of Scotland. He made the move to Dubai (like 240,000 other Brits) in 2002 lured by high wages and glamorous living. Until 2010 Jonathan was a successful copywriter in an upscale UAE advertising agency.

Jonathan fell behind with payments, and then the unpleasant side of the Dubai loan business began to invade his life. Jonathan cut back on his lifestyle; rarely e

Connor Clements, a young British man who was arrested in the UAE for traces of medical marijuana that were left in his system after legally taking it in the UK, has been dealt another blow. Connor has a medical form from John Lycett Green, the founder of Medical Marijuana UK explaining that Connor was legally taking Sativex spray and CBD Oil for anxiety.

This is in sharp contrast to the US Embassy which pulled out all the stops to help repatriate debt hostage David Oliver. The young Brit, who had moved to Dubai to save money for his future has already been sen
