A Scottish man accused of public indecency in Dubai has had the charges against him dropped after the ruler of the Emirate of Dubai intervened.

Jamie Harron, 27, from Stirling, had been for touching a man's hip in a bar.

Detained in Dubai, the group representing Mr Harron, said he had been exonerated by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum.

It said Mr Harron had his passport returned and is free to leave Dubai.

Mr Harron had also been accused of drinking alcohol and making a rude gesture towards the businessman who made the complaint.

Detained in Dubai's Radha Stirling said: "The cases against him have been dismissed, and the sentence imposed by the court yesterday has been nullified.

"We wish to express our deepest gratitude to Sheikh Mohammed for his personal intervention in this case, and for exonerating Jamie at long last.

"It has now been established that the allegations against Jamie were entirely unwarranted, defamatory, and meritless."

Ms Stirling said Mr Harron was now considering a civil action against the businessman and his employers.
