James and Stanley are booking the next flight home after 3 month tourist nightmare over rental car extortion scam.

"Radha Stirling, CEO of Detained in Dubai who represent James and Stanley, announced their return home in a live broadcast and issued the following statement today:
"While James and Stanley will be pleased to return to their families in England, it is outrageous that they have been slapped with a fine over allegations that CCTV clearly disproves. The boys were levied with frivolous assault charges, disproved by CCTV evidence as a means to intimidate them into paying extortionate money demands from a rental car company.
"Rather than slapping the boys with a fine and closing the books, the rental car agents should have been charged with extortion. If it were not for the media’s spotlight, James and Stanley would likely have been jailed.
"It is absurd that the UK government has not done more to protect the rights of citizens abroad. With the UAE’s history of human rights abuses, arbitrary detention and prosecution without evidence, any visitor is at risk."
