Thank you Steve, it was a very helpful reply.Hi,
I am fairly sure that if the plaintiff is present in Dubai - regardless of their visa status - then they can issue proceedings or themselves be charged or sued for any relevant offence that they are alleged to have committed whilst in Dubai.
When you are in Dubai - you are subject to the laws of the land.
People have been charged for having no alcohol license whilst drunk on an Emirates flight and only in transit through Dubai!
I said "the plaintiff" is the person filing a libel suit against a person or entity in Dubai.The plantiff is the one making the complaint, not the one being complained about.
Guess the question is really can an non-resident sue someone in Dubai.
Hi,I said "the plaintiff" is the person filing a libel suit against a person or entity in Dubai.
And my question was exactly that one. The plaintiff status as a non-resident...
I think you missunderstood the message...but thanks anyway for reading my post.
Thank you Steve for the clarification; your previous comment didn´t show up in the thread, so I though kmdxb was just replying directly to my question. Thank you both.Hi,
Actually they were replying to a mistake in my post - that I subsequently corrected!
