    It ain't funny.

    If its true, the best he can hope for is deportation. Otherwise he could be doing time - serious time.

    I wonder if he had the drugs in his bag or just some residue - you can get done for residue and traces as well. Say somebody rolled a fat blunt on a dub plate, then gave the Rider the dub plate - the amount left would be enough to get Rider a sentence.

    A friend of mine regularly visits Dubai on sports business trips. He says its turning into a more and more unfriendly place with every visit (twice or three times a year).

I am going to Egypt in a couple of weeks, I am gunna double check all the pockets in my old holdall just in case there some thing I have forgotten about. My girl old lives over there and she said you can buy your way out of trouble. But I dont plan on brashing my spending money

    I feel for you RIDER!!

    Egypt is a complete different place to Dubai. Don't lump the Middle East countries together.

    Egypt is more corrupt than Dubai but also more laid back. You won't get arrested for kissing your girlfriend in public and a tourist hitting the weed in Egypt is nothing for the police to bother about.

    Dubai - rich and nasty.

    They are both Muslim countries. But yes I do agree there are large difference's. Money being a big 1. Egypt is still classed as a third world country

    na they'd have let him off for a caution for that cos they wouldnt know him and would think its a first offence!

    anyway, yeh, i jsut seriously wouldnt even bother toking or trying to toke in dubai, they are seriously harsh on that shit, in egypt u can pay them off with a tenner and its no problem what-so-ever but dubai is a whole different league, their prisons are seriously harsh too, so he better hope the foreign office get involved and he can get his ass deported. otherwise he's really gonna be outta practice.
