    I don't know how arab prisons work, does anyone know if he can get released earlier for good behaviour or does he have to do the full four years?

    yeah, he could do, they usually release a lot of petty criminals during Eid as a gesture of goodwill.

    Thing is that Grooverider is high-profile so an example might be made of him.

    A friend of my missus' did time in Dubai for the same thing...

    His dad is some high ranking official in the Irish Government so managed to get him out early, but don't think as many strings are being pulled for Grooverider...

    Anyone written to their MP?

    Very clever. What with an average Dubai policeman being richer than Grooverider plus getting a large bonus for catching smugglers.

    Dubai is not Nigeria.

    I agree with Dusteks point - I don't think it would have worked, it's really difficult to bribe customs at an airport right there on the spot like that, so don't think it's would have worked

    However Dustek, how it is that you that you're aware of a Dubai policeman's rate of pay, and that their customs officers are incentivised in this way and receive a bonus for making a find? That's some specific knowledge there...

    Also you CAN bribe Dubai policemen - my friend lived out there and used to have to bribe his way all the time when he got caught doing minor offences...

    However I do agree with your point Dustek, it wouldn't have worked, but think there was a couple of non-facts thrown in there for good measure... I'll be the first top admit my bad if you've lived there and know these things or whatever...

    What's classed as good behaviour, not clanging his records during a mix?

    well, people living in the UAE get all bills paid for. energy, telephone, even mobile. they also get a grant every year from the oil production. Norway gives each family 13.000 euro each year. im pretty sure theres a similar amount for UAE residents too.
    plus petrol is like 30 p a litre..
    so however little money you make, its all yours to spent of worthless shit, since everything else is been taken care of from the state.
    so yeah, theyre loaded..

    and yes, im sure you can bribe them if they do you for bursting out in song or going through a traffic light, but certainly not when it comes to A: an import of drugs in the country, which they're very strict with, and no bribe is worth more than having a strong stance and proving people that you aint afraid of enforcing the law,
    and B: if it was Michael Smith from Huddersfield, they might just bend it a little, so he can tell his mates down the pub how the Arabs did nothing for his stash. But if grooverider starts chatting about his story on national radio, and i believe that he would blabber in great lengths about it, than you got a problem. so the guy goes down.

    hope he's doing well, im pretty sure they'll throw a massive party for when he's back. all this publicity will defo land him on tv at some point, which i'll find hilarious, will watch every day, and i'll tell all my mates that i write rave music so i can one day get on telly...
    and yeah, what mixing skills ? :D :teeth:
