Our client has had his death sentence overturned by the Supreme Court after a dramatic court process, as reported in The National newspaper. The 54-year-old British man found himself in need of money to travel home for medical treatment when a friend gave him an opportunity to make Dh3,500 in Dubai in 2018.
