British Man Imprisoned In Dubai For 'Touching Man's Hip'

British Man Imprisoned In Dubai For 'Touching Man's Hip'”

In connection to the claimed open profanity charge, Mr Harron is said to have been holding a drink, traveling through a swarmed bar and held a turn before him to abstain from spilling it on himself or others.

The man who initially complained about Harron withdrew the complaint but prosecutors pressed on with the case.

Mr Harron is on bail while he appeals against the sentence.

He has already been sentenced to a month in prison for the crime of drinking beer and fined 2,000 dirhams (£412).

Jamie Harron (27) from Stirling has been detained in the United Arab Emirates since July following freaky accusations of an alleged public disorder offence.

Jamie was in Dubai, with a friend, on a two-day stopover from Afghanistan, where he worked as an electrician.

Since the ordeal began, Harron has lost his job and claims to have spent more than $39,000 (AED143,000) in legal fees and expenses. There is no telling whether a judgment on appeal will be better or worse.

She said: "He has already suffered tremendously as a result of these allegations".

"Today Jamie Harron was sentenced to three months imprisonment for accidentally brushing the hip of an Arab customer at the Rock Bottom bar in Dubai", the group said in a statement.

"His family was not able visit him amid this basic time since they confronted an undeniable danger of detainment themselves under the UAE's digital wrongdoing laws which restrict feedback of the administration".

Neuman and Esser said its employee sought to drop his complaint against Harron in August, but Harron's supporters have said there is no documentation to support this and said his accuser had never appeared in court to request a dismissal.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has provided consular assistance.
