5 News TV report on Billy Hood, sentenced to 25 years in notorious Dubai jail after his visiting friend left tiny bottles of mixed CBD vape oil in Billy's company car.
Corrupt and financially incentivised police decided their pockets were more valuable than this young man's life and proceeded to charge him with trafficking and selling the same tiny bottles.
Radha Stirling, CEO of Detained in Dubai, called on the government to intervene directly in the case. “Our gov should, as other foreign governments do for their citizens, be engaging with their diplomatic counterpart in the UAE to raise this case with the authorities, who would hopefully review court documents and exonerate him, ultimately. “He wasn’t trafficking, he wasn’t selling, there’s no evidence of that, and he’s suffered coercion and pressure that’s made him sign a confession in Arabic.”
