Podcast: Chris Sweeney talks to:Ep 3: The Real Dubai with Radha Stirling

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.
