MUM’S DUBAI DRINK STINK
A BRITISH mother 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, Bibi, after a row about a visa with an immigration officer.
She was released after Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid AlMaktoum personally intervened. The mother-of-three was last night planning to return to the UK as soon as possible. ‘‘I can’t believe this is over,’’ she said.
Dr Holman claims she was imprisoned after revealing she she had consumed a glass of red wine served to her on an Emirates flight to Dubai.
