Some of their allegations involved the infamous cases of Matthew Hedges, Rahaf AlQunun and the recent case of two UK Nationals arrested for selling illegal narcotics in Dubai.

Radha Stirling, a human rights activist and the brains behind Detained in Dubai, has made some outlandish comments about the UAE, such as saying the country is “one of the riskiest places to invest in the world” and calling Dubai’s economy “shaky.”
