Interpol is allowing itself to be illegally used as a debt collection agency by UAE banks. The UAE is a generous contributor to Interpol's coffers, having pledged $54 million in 2016. Brits who miss a credit card or loan payment and leave the country have their debt falsely classified as fraud by the UAE so they can list the defaulter with Interpol for the purposes of extradition.

Expats advised: Prepare properly if forced to leave debts in the UAE.

Expats in Dubai often get caught up in a nightmare of debt, thanks to unregulated credit being pushed at them every day. Missing one payment means jail, as debt is a criminal offence in the UAE (as opposed to a civil matter in the Western world.) Often people take loans in good faith but their circumstances change and they flee before being sent to jail, but their problems are far from over.
