No com­plaint but Dubai Brit still risks jail

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - NEWS - BY ELLIE FORBES

A BRI­TON may still go to jail for touch­ing a busi­ness­man in a Dubai bar – even though the com­plaint has been with­drawn.

Jamie Har­ron, 27, was ar­rested af­ter Emad Tabaza said he was re­peat­edly touched on the thigh.

Mr Tabaza said he did want to press charges af­ter hear­ing Har­ron, of Stir­ling, could be jailed for three years for pub­lic in­de­cency, but the case has con­tin­ued.

Har­ron de­nies he was drunk and says he touched Tabaza’s hip to stop him spilling his drink. Radha Stir­ling, head of De­tained In Dubai, said: “This got blown out of pro­por­tion.”

Jamil Mukadam, 23, of Le­ices­ter – at risk of six months’ jail for a rude ges­ture at a Dubai mo­torist – is free af­ter the “vic­tim” failed to turn up at court.
