A 21-year-old New York college student has been detained in Dubai after airport staffers accused her of "assaulting and insulting" them.


Elizabeth Polanco De Los Santos was traveling from Istanbul with a friend when the incident unfolded in mid-July, according to a press release from Detained in Dubai, an organization that provides advice and legal assistance to foreigners in the United Arab Emirates.

The pair had a 10-hour layover in Dubai, which they chose over Paris, France. For Polcano De Los Santos, those 10 hours have now stretched into multiple months.

"We thought it would be a more modern and futuristic city, but we were completely wrong," Polanco De Los Santos said in the press release.


As she went through the security screening, airport employees told her she needed to take off her doctor-mandated waist training brace.

Despite her hesitations, she agreed and was ushered into a booth with female security officers, who were "rough" as they removed the compressor, according to the press release.

"I felt really violated," Polanco De Los Santos said, adding that she was "uncomfortable and afraid." As she tried to put the trainer back on by herself, a process that takes two people, she cried and asked for help. The security officers didn't help and blocked her exit, at which point Polanco De Los Santos lightly nudged one of them so that she could call out to her friend for help, the press release said.

"I gently touched her arm to guide her out of the way then desperately started crying to my friend for help," she said. Though the search came back clear, officials told her she'd be detained for "touching the female customs officer" and kept her for hours as they filed the complaint.

Just filing a criminal or civil case against someone in Dubai triggers a complicated legal process wherein the accused party is prohibited from leaving the country. In fact, local scammers are known for using such cases to extort foreigners for money, saying they'll drop the case in exchange for thousands of dollars.

A Texas woman was detained in Dubai for months after being accused of yelling, which her accusers said violated the nation's obscenity law. She was released after paying more than $1,000 to have the travel ban against her lifted.

Radha Stirling, the CEO of Detained in Dubai, said people can end up detained in the UAE for years on bogus or minor charges. In another case Stirling is working on, a US veteran has been detained in the country for years on what he says are false charges that he owes a debt to his children's school.

For Polanco De Los Santos, a student at Lehman College, the last few months moving from one hotel to another and waiting for court hearings have been miserable.

"Even if Elizabeth wins her case, six months or more of being forced to stay in the country at her own cost while under the very real threat of imprisonment is an unacceptable consequence of tr@nsiting through Dubai," Stirling said in the press release. "This is simply no way to treat visitors."

People have laws. Unlike us. Especially When youre foreign and break them they choose to enforce them. Just got back from Montego Bay and this couple was having some DV going on in their room. They drug that dude out of the room and beat the breaks off him in the lobby worse than Rodney king. I legit thought he was ki1ling the girl. You could hear it from outside the room at the pool. Dude ain’t gonna see USA any time soon.

Women in America are entitled, narcissistic, out of control wh0res and when they go to a country that won’t bow on their knees to them like what America does for its women, they don’t know how to act. They already don’t know how to act and so when they go to a country that follows god rules, these godless entitled th0ts get bucked lol

I Don't believe her. Bih said she gently touched her to move her. Bih said waist trainer was doctor mandated

F dis broad. Keep her

Lot of people in USA think they can do what they want in other countries then call the country bogus for not submitting or making you pay for your silly.

what law was she breaking here ?? Touching someone allegedly ??that's the only thing I see . it sounds like the airpor personal were on a power trip. unlike in the west. i noticed a lot of places look for a reason to tell you no. in addition to bribary and all sorts of other things. out here people are willing to work with you more. but in other parts of the world its just a straight up no. and you gotta pay to get out of the situation.

now her waist trainer being doctor mandated sounds like cap but i dont know enough about waist trainers to speculate on that .

and i would choose paris france over dubai any day of the day

but she was still dealt a bad hand in this situation

american laws >>>
