Mum jailed over wine
A BRITISH woman, who claimed she was jailed in Dubai for drinking a glass of wine on her flight from London, has been released on the orders of the country’s ruler.
Dr Ellie Holman, 44, was locked up for three days with her four-year-old daughter.
She was released yesterday after Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum personally intervened.
Dr Holman, a mother of three, claimed she was imprisoned after saying she had consumed a glass of red wine on an Emirates flight to Dubai. It is illegal to drink alcohol in Dubai, a Muslim emirate.
