Stirling urges FCO to update travel warnings in light of Laleh Shahravesh case

British legal group Detained in Dubai has urged the FCO to update its UAE travel warnings to UK tourists in an open letter penned by the organisation’s head, Radha Stirling. “We have frequently called upon the FCO to provide more accurate information to Britons about the many risks they face in the UAE which the current advisory does not cover,” Stirling said. “It is simply not enough to warn people to obey the laws and customs, when very often the legal system itself poses a threat even to law-abiding tourists who may be subjected to false arrests, fabricated cases, forced confessions, torture, and lack of representation.” Stirling’s letter specifically highlights the dangers inherent in th

British "facebook-horse" post prisoner in Dubai free to return home

Still no freedom for Brit mum held for Facebook post, as judge postpones trial without date

Further anguish for British homeless shelter worker trapped in Dubai. Laleh Shahravesh was expecting to hear her fate today, only to be told by the Emirati judge that the case would be postponed, and no date given as to when. No relief for Laleh Shahravesh, or her daughter Paris, fraught with anxiety about a future without her mum. Instead, what was anticipated to be the day the court’s judgement would be issued became another painful delay in the case, as the complainant, Samah Al Hammadi failed to turn up, and was being represented by a new attorney who requested more time to acquaint himself with the case. Radha Stirling, CEO of Detained in Dubai, who is representing Laleh, said, “It appe

The last few years have been a series of upheavals and turbulence for the quiet teenager, and the outcome of tomorrow’s hearing will determine whether or not her immediate future will be getting even worse, or provide her a chance for normalcy.
