Billy Barclay was warned by the British Government not to proceed with advice from Detained in Dubai. They reportedly advised him to not take his story to the media and that doing so would make matters worse. This advice is alarming, as most cases have shown that active media campaigning has proved to be sometimes the only way innocent people detained in the UAE can gain their freedom.

A British father of two is being held in Dubai since September 15th, facing up to a year in jail for charges (of passing a counterfeit banknote) he has already been cleared of. He was arrested, investigated and released to continue his holiday. But when he returned to the UAE the following year for another holiday, a mix up in the system saw him arrested and detained. He is still being held.
