Bring Sun McKay Home
Visitors are being held captive for months after passports are confiscated for minor offenses in Dubai. Australian visitor detained in Dubai after responding with swearing to an aggressive undercover police officer. Sun McKay responded in such a way, only because the Undercover, plain clothes (wearing a blue suit) Airport Police Officer, PHYSICALLY GRABBED SUN FIRST WITHOUT IDENTIFYING HIMSELF TO SUN. IF THE POLICE OFFICER HAD OF IDENTIFIED HIMSELF FIRST - SUN WOULD NOT BE WHERE HE IS TODAY, FIGHTING FOR HIS FREEDOM. HOW THE NIGHTMARE BEGAN:- 32 year old Sun McKay from Adelaide, Australia was travelling to Dubai. As a result of Sun's military work, he had been to Dubai many times and knew the drill. On this occasion though, he was roughly grabbed and yelled at in Arabic by a person in plain clothes. Sun was surprised at this harassment and responded with what the f**k Later, the man identified himself as being an undercover officer, at which point Sun apologised but this was not enough. Sun was INTERROGATED, his PASSPORT CONFISCATED and he now lingers in Dubai, awaiting the results of a hearing that could send him to JAIL for 3 YEARS as well as possible fines and damages. THESE PRISONS ARE WELL KNOWN FOR BREACHES IN HUMAN RIGHTS. Sun tried to apologise and appeal to the Airport Policeman, Mr Hussain Redar Al Shoubani to drop the charges. Sun was simply startled as all of us would be, after being grabbed by what appeared to be a random stranger, perhaps who was trying to hurt him or steal from him. He is a caring and genuine man, loved and missed by his family and friends.
