Minister of State, Alistair Burt to meet with family of Andy Neal - innocent veteran held for 6 mont

Concern over the unjust detention of British veteran Andy Neal grows every day that his incarceration is prolonged. Tomorrow, Thursday March 21, 2019, Minister of State Alistair Burt and MP Mark Spencer will be meeting with Andy’s parents to discuss their son’s plight and what the British government is doing to help secure his release. “We are very grateful to see the Minister’s keenness to support Andy and his family,” says Radha Stirling, CEO of Detained in Dubai, whose organisation is representing Neal. “MP Mark Spencer has been involved since the early days in the case, and respected officers of the British military have been vocal in their calls for the government to intervene on Andy’s

Family fearful as British veteran Andy Neal is moved to Abu Dhabi facing life in prison

Decorated veteran Andy Neal has been held in Dubai prison for over five months on allegations of selling drugs. The police investigation showed no evidence of any such crime, and the witness confirmed that it was not Andy he spoke of, when he made a statement.

Detained in Dubai’s CEO, Radha Stirling, who is representing the family said “the move to Abu Dhabi is highly concerning where conditions are worse than Dubai. Andy has been struggling to keep himself together while in custody, but has at least been able t

“Brits - Please support veteran Andy Neal & Stop Visiting Dubai!” - desperate father pleads

Desperation is building as army veteran dog handler Andy Neal's imprisonment continues. “I simply can't believe that Dubai can lock up my son for nearly half a year without just cause and the UK government has left them get away with it.

The perception they create is that if you obey the law, you'll be fine and that's exactly what Andy did, he's not fine - he's a hostag

Australian human rights and UAE expert Radha Stirling, whose organisation Detained in Dubai has led the effort to secure Latifa’s release, remembers well the night the princess was captured, “Latifa contacted me after she set out on the yacht Nostromo, heading for India, and we were in regular communication during their tense journey across the sea,” Stirling recalls, “They were a few miles from the shore of Goa when Latifa phoned me in a panic, pleading for he
