Dubai "public indecency" detention updates. German company missteps in defence of complain

Updated: Dec 15, 2021


The German company of which the Managing Director is Emad Tabaza, the accuser in the “public indecency” case against Jamie Harron has issued its first statement on the controversy. It includes a number of erroneous claims which contradict the established facts.

Neuman & Esser’s statement alleges that Jamie was drunk and belligerent, whereas it is known that he had consumed only 3 beers, and his blood alcohol level was well below what would normally be regarded as intoxicated. Furthermore, witnesses including security staff from the bar, confirm that Jamie was not confrontational at all, and that it was the Jordanian NEA Group boss Emad Tabaza who in fact raised his voice repeatedly towards Jamie.

The incident occurred at a bar called the Rock Bottom, which does not even open for business before 19:30; the time which Neuman & Esser claims the altercation took place. Jamie told Radha “At 19:30, I was still enjoying dinner at my friend’s house, miles away. The claims are ridiculous”.

The Neuman & Esser statement, which some observers believe to have been written by Mr Tabaza himself, states that the bouncer and manager were not concerned about the incident. Sceptical comments have been made on Western media articles suggesting that if the bouncer thought it was a non-event, and the manager also thought it unimportant, then perhaps Emad Tabaza was in fact just throwing his weight around.
