Americans detained in Dubai - A by-product of UAE lobbying?

Updated: Feb 17, 2022

American detained in Dubai is not alone. Why does Dubai jail tourists? UAE lobbying has suppressed criminality for over a decade and it is US citizens who pay.

Nevada resident Peter Clark, originally from California, is one of a string of American tourists who have seen the inside of a Dubai jail. Just what is making Dubai so unsafe?

Clark has called on Senator Rosen and Senator Cortez Masto to assist, after being arrested for trace elements of cannabis found in his urine when he was hospitalised in Dubai. He faces several years in prison if found guilty of possessing cannabis in his blood, even though it was consumed legally back home in Nevada, outside of the UAE’s jurisdiction.
