A Scottish man has been sentenced to three months in jail in Dubai for touching a man's hip as he carried a drink through a crowded bar.
Jamie Harron, from Stirling, Scotland, was arrested in July over the incident in which he said he put his hand on businessman Emad Tabaza's hip to avoid spilling a drink in a crowded bar.
DiD said the 27-year-old was not told about the court date in advance and that sentence is also being appealed against.
According to Detained In Dubai, leading experts in Middle Eastern Law, Mr Harron has yet to be sentenced for two other charges stemming from the case; that of consuming alcohol, and for allegedly making a rude gesture against Mr Tabaza.
CM Mehbooba skips police commemoration day function
Former chief minister Omar Abdullah attended the function. "During floods, police was at the forefront in rescuing the people", he said.
A normally reliable channel reports today that Mr Harron has been jailed for three months, following which he will be deported from Dubai, and that his lawyers aim to appeal.
In a statement, the group said Harron was "angry, disappointed and dreads what may happen next".
Mr Harron, who worked as an electrician in Afghanistan, was on a two-day stopover in the United Arab Emirates at the time of the incident on 15 July.
He has already spent several months stranded in the UAE over this case, lost his job, and is in danger of losing his home as he struggles to pay legal expenses. He has already suffered tremendously as a result of these allegations, and now faces the likelihood of incarceration.
Kevin Magnussen penalised for blocking Sergio Perez
Magnussen accepted the blame for his incident, claiming his Haas team incorrectly advised him that Perez was not on a flying lap.
Mr Tabaza, the managing director of global technology firm Neuman & Esser, is said to have received death threats following the incident.
Mr Harron, she said, is understandably distraught.
'At this point, Jamie will definitely be pursuing civil action against his accusers when he does eventually return home, as it appears that he will not be able to find justice in the UAE'.
Neuman and Esser said its employee sought to drop his complaint against Harron in August, but Harron's supporters have said there is no documentation to support this and said his accuser had never appeared in court to request a dismissal.
