Radha Stirling is the leading exponent of highlighting human rights abuses and assisting those caught in legal disputes in Dubai, and the UAE. She had a key role in the famous failed freedom escape of Princess Latifa.
Radha also discusses past cases such as the woman locked up for calling someone a horse online and goes on to explain how she founded her organisation (Detained in Dubai) without having any connection to Dubai.
The conversation turns the spotlight on Sheikh Mohammed, #Dubai's ruler, and how his political outlook has changed, becoming more authoritarian.
What Radha says could change your perception of Dubai, a popular holiday destination for millions.
