Radha Stirling Statement on Saudi Arabia Cabinet Shuffle

Radha Stirling, Middle Eastern Criminal and Civil Justice Expert, Expert Witness and founder of Detained in Dubai issued the following statement in relation to Saudi Arabia’s cabinet shuffle: “Saudi Arabia announced a cabinet shuffle today that saw Foreign Minister Adel Al Jubeir ‘demoted’, though not altogether removed, and replaced by former Finance Minister Ibrahim Al Assaf. Many have commented that this change is little more than a damage-control PR maneuver by Mohammad bin Salman to distance himself from the murder of Jamal Khashoggi; but that may be a superficial analysis of the move. There is no doubt that the Khashoggi killing, as well as a few other controversies have tarnished the

Detained in Dubai & Guernica 37 response - Mary Robinson meeting with Sheikha Latifa fails to an

Statement of Radha Stirling, CEO of Detained in Dubai Anyone familiar with Princess Latifa’s story who listened to the BBC Radio interview today with Mary Robinson will be astonished at the extent to which Ms Robinson appeared to be reciting almost verbatim from Dubai’s script. What we heard today was Mary Robinson essentially reciting for BBC Radio listeners the content of the statement issued by the Dubai Ruler’s Court. She had nothing to say about the charges Latifa made against her father, Sheikh Mohammed, in her video, only saying that Latifa, now again in her father’s custody, regretted having recorded it. She said nothing about Latifa’s having planned her escape for nearly a decade, n

Australia & FIFA must pressure Interpol, Thailand & Bahrain to secure pro footballer's f

Detention of Bahraini/Australian resident and pro footballer in Thailand highlights Gulf state Interpol abuse and international cooperation issues. Australia needs to pressure Interpol to withdraw the politically motivated red notice, Thailand to decline extradition and Bahrain to withdraw their extradition request. FIFA has also been a strong financial supporter of Interpol and should use their own channels to pressure for the removal of the red notice against their fellow sportsman. Radha Stirling, an expert witness in extradition proceedings to the Middle East, Interpol Abuse, Human Rights expert and Detained in Dubai’s CEO, released the following statement on the detention and potentia

Radha Stirling comments on the escalation of belligerent behaviour of the UAE Upon her return from Washington D.C., having met with policy makers, academics, journalists and human rights organisations; Radha Stirling reflects on the current trajectory of the UAE’s relations with the international community: The killing of Jamal Khashoggi Seven months before dissident Jamal Khashoggi was brutally murdered, Saudi Arabia’s principle ally in the Gulf, the United Arab Emirates brutally abducted Sheikha Latifa Al Maktoum, the estranged and would-be dissident daughter of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Ruler of Dubai and UAE Prime Minister. Along with Latifa, the Emirates also abducted an Ameri

Expanding Indo-UAE ties unsettling in light of Latifa incident

Indo-UAE ties to expand Emirates’ sphere of influence a troubling development, given UAE’s record of human rights abuse and disregard for the rule of law; reveals short term thinking of Modi govt To anyone who has lived in, or even visited the United Arab Emirates, one thing is obvious: the country could not function without Indians. Foreigners often joke that the national language of the Emirates is Hindi or Urdu, not Arabic. Indeed, in the 1950s, rupees used to be legal tender in the UAE. An Indian official once quipped that Abu Dhabi was India’s cleanest city. Aside from supplying the UAE with the largest portion of its work force, India has always been one of the Gulf nation’s most impor

Flags will be on display; outside buildings, in shop windows, or waved ecstatically by young men in white kanduras and sunglasses standing through the sunroofs of expensive cars, ho

Power of UAE passport illustrates global silence over human rights abuses, crimes

UAE passport today is the strongest in the world, reflecting a degree of global influence linked to SWF investments, tantamount to hush money to silence critics The United Arab Emirates is reportedly now the world’s most powerful passport, according to website passportindex.org (although the UAE passport is still listed as number 21 on the more reliable Henley Index. Emiratis can gain entry to 167 countries without obtaining a prior visa; 113 countries visa-free, and another 54 using visas on arrival.
