Just thinking, if people can raise enough noise about this situation - enough to effect public opinion - money talks. If there's enough negative publicity about UAE/Dubai, there could be economic consequences for that party, especially if they rely on tourism.

The fact that a woman who threw her baby in the garbage was sentenced to one year and someone who is of value to society got four years for some blaze n pron must turn a substantial amount of people off from the place.

I don't have the time, knowledge or resources to contribute much in such a venture, but maybe someone else does...

Their oil is running out and they're building hotels. They expect to get rich on tourists. Check it out.

nah dont think so
these guys have enough money to do whatever the fuck they want for the rest of thier lives regardless to whether oil is going to run out
hotels are minor investments compared with the islands they are building, selling homes on individual pieces of land, one project is shaped like the world and i think branson has bought the united kingdom bit

tourists are not the people they are trying to attract, its the mindlessly wealthy people they want
and its these mindlessly wealthy people that control our society over here and in the states

this isnt a rant at "the man" or a 9/11 conspiracy theory but its the fact that whoever has the most money/resources has the most power and grooverider is far too insignificant/poor to change anything

and plus its not like he's completely innocent, they found porn and drugs on him, i can hardly see middle england taking the side of a horny stoned DJ

porn is illegal in dubai so there fore it is an offence

and as for the jam a number of choices regarding american and british foreign policy towards the middle east have disappointed me greatly

even though these countries break human rights laws everyday we continue to trade with them

a week before the saudi prince visited this county last year a woman was condemned to 200 lashes because she was raped by 6 men
the reason she was found guilty is because she needed 3 male witnesses to be believed over a man's word and she only had her fiancée as support
she appealed against the verdict and was given another 200 lashes for her efforts
gordon brown shook this guys hand a week after the appeal and said nothing

and she WAS innocent

i've already offered a sensible possibility of a resolve in the verdict thread.

the Al Maktoum family (who rule Dubai) have been known to release certain prisoners (on small offences) as a gesture of goodwill before Eid, the next one being Eid-al-Fitr in October.

Maybe a heart felt plea - backed by the our government - may sway an early release.

You lot and myspace can all make up "petitions" to get the rider out but it wont happen people as much as we want it to. Somebody in dubei had weed stuck to the bottem of there shoe n got a bigger sentance as they then gave him a drug test and came back positive because he had been smoking it previous so it looks pretty unlucky for the rider..and you really think the British Goverment are gonig to help a drum&bass DJ?..i doubt it.

Have to agree with DubplateKillah. Unless Noami Campbell or Michael Jackson are willing to give a sheikh a call, Groove is down at least until the next letspardonsomeforeignerstoimproveourimage phase. He's got a good chance of spending 4 years in prison. The British government and BBC will NOT help him and even if Fabio, Goldie and Hype all made a personal appeal to all and sunder it will not matter a damn.

I'd be glad to buy an album to help Rider's family, that's about all we can do.

although i agree with both the above...that unfortunately for Grooverider the possibilty of an early release is very very unlikely, without fuss it is far less likely and whatever people can do is worth the effort.
