    Default UK Woman, daughter held in Dubai after mom had wine on plane

    woman was detained in Dubai for three days with her 4-year-old daughter after drinking a complimentary glass of wine on a flight from London, according to the human rights group Detained in Dubai.

    The Guardian reports that Ellie Holman, a 44-year-old dentist originally from Sweden who lives in England with her partner, Gary, and their children, was denied water and made to clean toilets while in custody.

    She was arrested on July 13 after an immigration official questioned her about her visa and asked if she had consumed alcohol.

    “After landing, she was questioned by an immigration official, who said her visa was invalid and she must return to London immediately, the group said.

    She said the official was “dismissive and rude” when she asked if she could buy another visa, and was then questioned about her alcohol, which she admitted to consuming

    Holman claims she and her daughter Bibi were initially denied food, water, and access to a toilet while being held in a cell together for three days.

    Holman claimed the guards tried to rip out her hair extensions and described the prison as hot and “foul-smelling,” according to the Guardian. She said the pair were made to sleep on a “filthy” mattress and she was told to clean toilets and floors.

    “My little girl had to go to the toilet on the cell floor. I have never heard her cry in the same way as she did in that cell,” she said.

    Why bother travelling to some of these countries?

    Sh-t would never happen to me cause I wouldn't waste my time or money.

    this is a bollocks story. I very much doubt she was arrested for drinking wine on a plane. Sounds like she was arrested for being a stroppy ignorant bitch with the officials

    I don’t know X it is illegal to drink in many Muslim airspace but usually the flight crew makes sure that is followed. You could be right but I know it does happen in certain Muslim countries
