Some interesting and controversial comments have been printed by readers, almost all being very much anti-Dubai, even from those who have spent time here.

Some of the "controversial comments" are opinions while others are facts which the pro-Dubai brigade (admittedly I saw just one member of this brigade in the comments section) never mentions.

The raped woman being jailed in Fujairah being one of such cases....
