Detained in Dubai, the organisation founded over a decade ago, discusses the case of Mohammed Haddad who has taken action against Baker McKenzie's CEO Habib al Mulla in the High Court of England for corruption and legal abuse that lead to the theft of Al Mulla's £250,000,000 company. - Aljazeera
International justice campaigners say the case highlights concerns about the rule of law in the UAE and other Gulf states. “In Mohamed Haddad’s case, we can say that the formal system conspired with the informal system of power in the UAE,” Radha Stirling, chief executive of Detained in Dubai and Due Process International, said.
Ms Stirling argued that the London High Court was the appropriate legal forum for the claim because Mr Haddad’s business was created with English law dispute resolution provisions.
“No judge in the UAE would ever hear this case impartially,” she said. The High Court had given leave to serve the defendants outside the UK, she added.
