British Cancer Sufferer Thrown In Jail In Dubai Over His Lawful Prescription Medication

January 8. 2018

Perry Coppins

61-year-old British man Perry Coppins was thrown in jail during a visit to Dubai. He was arrested by the government over his lawful medication for “carrying too many pills.” However, Coppins trip to Dubai was to last for 6-months and he brought the corresponding amount of medication with him for the visit.

Coppins was left in jail for 5-weeks, which caused his health to greatly deteriorate, resulting in “bouts of blindness“ “hallucinations“ “weight loss” and withdrawal. Doctors routinely advise that patients are to be weaned off pharmaceutical drugs. Patients are not advised to abruptly stop, as it can induce painful, undesirable and unhealthy side effects. Coppins was released last week.
 
As stated in past articles, a number of foreign tourists from the West, who have visited Dubai on vacation/holiday, have been arrested for innocuous behavior labeled offenses. The Dubai government runs advertising campaigns in western nations such as Britain and Australia, then promptly arrests tourist for drinking alcohol, having sex, kissing or holding hands in public, eating or drinking during the month of Ramadan, cross dressing or bringing their medication into the country.

According to the Independent UK newspaper, “In 2005, a British couple received a one-month jail sentence for kissing in a restaurant after a local woman complained.” Female tourists have been arrested in Dubai for being raped. These arrests must stop, as it is outrageous and very damaging to tourists, who end up losing their jobs, homes and savings under traumatic circumstances, while battling legal charges from a Dubai prison. Jews are also not permitted to enter Dubai, which is discriminatory.
