Jonathan Castle moved to the UAE for the tax free earning opportunities. After getting into debt he is now stuck, apparently forever in Dubai. Not allowed to work, not allowed to leave until paying his debt. And no money to pay the debt unless he is allowed to work. 61 and homeless, his health is failing, his marriage is under strain and his savings all gone

71 year Malcolm Munroe, hospitalised after suffering a stroke in 2013 left him paralysed and bedridden, unable to move except for blinking.

Malcolm has no chance to pay those debts or survive the sentence.
