Charges dropped against Briton detained in Dubai for touching man's hip

Charges dropped against Briton detained in Dubai for touching man's hip

A normally reliable channel reports today that Mr Harron has been jailed for three months, following which he will be deported from Dubai, and that his lawyers aim to appeal.

At the Dubai Court of Misdemeanours, Harron had denied charges of consuming alcohol without a license and committing a publicly indecent act by flagging his middle finger.

However, the Scot has had his passport returned to him following a special order from ruler of the emirate Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who called for the case to be dismissed.

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

Alas, the only part of the Monday Comey tweet that has a clear meaning is the sentence about having to write. The account has also tweeted out scenic pictures from West Point , Gettysburg and around Iowa.

Jamie Harron, from Stirling, Scotland, was sentenced to three months for public indecency on Sunday after he was arrested in July.

Mr Harron, who had been working in Afghanistan, planned to make a two-day visit to the popular tourist destination when the incident took place.

He maintains he had touched the businessman by mistake and put his hand on his hip in the crowded bar to stop his drink being spilled.

"I have advised them that they are at risk of being charged under the UAE's Cybercrime Laws for speaking negatively about the regime and that the coverage of this case should offer them some protection", said Radha Stirling, chief executive of Detained in Dubai.

Cowboys Elliott cleared to face Redskins
Elliott excelled in the rout of the winless 49ers, scoring three touchdowns and posting a career best 219 yards from scrimmage. The temporary restraining order granted by Crotty was to remain in effect until then or until Failla ruled on an injunction.

A spokesperson for the group said that cops called Mr Harron on Monday morning, telling him that "the case had been dismissed, and that he should come in to collect his passport".

The Scot had already been sentenced in absentia to 30 days in prison for failing to appear at a court hearing for making a rude gesture and drinking alcohol during the same July incident.

He later lost his job following his arrest and was told that he could be facing years in prison. Harron was stripped of his passport and spent five days in jail as he awaited further legal proceedings.
