In the case of Scotland resident Garnet Black, the request came from his disgruntled son in law who wanted to exert pressure onto his former wife to return to him after she abandoned him in the UAE. The UK taxpayer is funding frivolous privately inspired prosecutions from highly emotional and vengeful Emiratis. The requests are not for cases involving serious or violent crime. They have usual arisen from a business partnership dispute or cases of a civil nature, often driven by spite.
Stirling provided Expert Testimony in this case and the extradition was denied.
