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.
