#FreeAlbert #DetainedinDubai

THE PROJECT

60 year old Londoner, Albert Douglas, made a brave attempt to cross to Oman after losing faith in Dubai’s justice system. He had stayed in the glitzy city, thinking an innocent man could never be convicted. He had faith in the “system” and faith in the legal process. But when he saw the proceedings unfold, he couldn’t believe his own eyes. Everything he’d heard, but not believed, was happening to him.

He was being prosecuted for a crime he hadn’t committed, and evidence of his innocence was completely disregarded by everyone he tried to show. He still waited, hoping a higher court would be more diligent, but nobody cared. Despite having spent a significant fortune on lawyers and despite having documentation to prove his innocence, he was persecuted. Why? Because he was the father of an officer of a company that had gone bad. Other parties sought to hold him as a hostage.

THE HARD TRUTH

TORTURE & HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES ARE PREVALENT IN THE UAE

THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT HAS CHOSEN NOT TO WARN CITIZENS

THE UAE IS ONE OF THE RISKIEST PLACES FOR BRITISH NATIONALS TO VISIT OR INVEST IN

The United Arab Emirates is the country where British nationals are most likely to face legal issues, arbitrary and unfair detention and human rights violations within the prison system.

The British courts have consistently refused to extradite to the UAE based on the 'real risk of unfair trials, discrimination, human rights violations and torture', yet the British government has refused to properly warn citizens of the risks involved with traveling to or investing in the UAE.

Albert Douglas, a grandfather, has been held detained for crimes he has not committed.  The prosecution has refused to instruct a forensic investigation that would exonerate Albert and have told Albert that his innocence is irrelevant, that "this is Dubai".

Thanks for submitting!
