British woman held in Dubai after ‘swearing in a WhatsApp message’ | The Independent

I wonder what the other sides of the story are

Easily done...a hairdresser who was quite well known in Dubai owed me several thousand dirhams, I was a bit over zealous on WhatsApp (due to the fact that he was regularly out drinking/brunching, but had not paid me one dirham back) and he hinted that I’d broken the law. The undertones meant I was not in a position to push too hard, I never got the money back.

Explain how a hairdresser ends up owing you thousands of dirhams? No boring for work done answers - let's have the true underbelly of the street hairdressing scene exposed

Fitting out a salon in Media City...honest.

I should have sent in bailiffs and claimed a decent barbers chair, would have been handy in the past 12 months.
