Innocent Malaysian jailed 8 months in Dubai for being paid his wages. The project director was caught in the crossfire of an argument between the Emirati owner of the subsidiary and the parent company. One party argued that the work was not approved, and so any wages paid were deemed to be "stolen." The workers had no idea about the dispute and thought they were working/being paid as normal.

Richard Lau was arrested last April with several others, based on accusations from an Emirati businessman that Richard’s salary and commissions constitute embezzlement from his company. Despite no evidence of wrongdoing, Richard’s detention is extended every two weeks as the Public Prosecutor requests more time to investigate. Every accused party has been released while Richard stays in jail.
