I call the government to pursue an immediate trial of Eissa, the person responsible for this hideous video.

Any person who treats people like this is SCUM.

General Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, called on people to take a stand against child abuse after visiting the girl.

Shaikh Mohammad, accompanied by his daughter, Shaikha Shamma, visited the critically ill child at Al Mafraq Hospital on April 5.


^^ hope we all stand against individuals abuse too

Now that this is getting such international attention it'll be interesting to see how the newly-appointed PR people and the government react.

It'll tell us an awful lot about how far the country's progressed.

I hope they charge him and sentence him with something heavy. Make an example of this sick fuck to show that a) This kind of behavior will not be tolerated from anyone, no matter how powerful they think they are and b) to show that we emiraties do not stand for this shit.

If it wasnt bad enough that people are reporting fake crap about our 'bad' country everyday, but then we have some illterate kid torturing this guy, providing too much fodder for the international playa haters of the UAE.

Why was journalist detained in Dubai?
Comments (2)
In my posting yesterday and another the week before, I mentioned the treatment meted out to a Bloomberg News journalist in the United Arab Emirates.

It transpires that the journalist, A. Craig Copetas, was detained when he arrived at the airport in Dubai last week and then detained for questioning again when flying out.

He was also followed during his stay in Dubai and his room was searched. A colleague said: "Craig worked in the Soviet Union for 10 years and it reminded him of his time there.

"He is baffled because he has visited the UAE many times before and nothing like this has happened in the past."

A Dubai-based journalist said that it was clear that the secret police were involved in Copetas's detention rather than customs or immigration officials.

The reasons for his treatment remain unclear. He was involved in researching a story, but his colleague believes it may have more to do with the publication earlier this month of a book by Copetas, Mona Lisa's pajamas: Diverting dispatches from a roving reporter. It's a collection of his columns written for the Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg News.

Whatever the case, the incident punctures a hole in claims by Ibrahim Al Abed, director-general of the UAE's National Media Council, that press freedom in the country is improving and that a new media law will improve it still further.

He can't be tried. He has immunity, he is a royal.

I'm wondering if any of the local papers reported this. Can anyone provide a link if available?

The National -- alone among local papers, I think -- has done a story on the allegations and the promised UAE investigation.
