    A British flight attendant is being held in a notorious Dubai prison after police allegedly found two cannabis joints in her date’s apartment.
    Derrin Crawford, 23, who works for Emirates airlines and lives in the United Arab Emirates, was on a first date with a man when his home was raided by cops, The Sun reported.
    Ms Crawford, originally from Liverpool, UK, was held at a police station for several days before being transferred to the notorious Al Barsha jail after two joints were allegedly found at the flat.

    Despite a blood test on Thursday that showed Ms Crawford had no drugs in her system, the Brit is still being held in handcuffs in the hellhole prison.
    Her sister, Danielle, 28, said she was concerned for the welfare of the young flight attendant.
    “She is innocent, she was just in the wrong place at the wrong time,” she told the MailOnline.

    Blood tests reportedly showed there were no drugs in her system, yet she remains in prison.Source:Facebook

    “The police have been trying to interrogate her, but she doesn’t even know this guy.
    “She doesn’t drink or smoke and has a good job with Emirates, so it is a shame she has got caught up in all this. She’s only 23 and is just so scared.”

    Ms Crawford's family, from Liverpool, UK, are trying to find her a lawyer.Source:Facebook

    Ms Crawford, whose mum died when she was aged 11, moved to Dubai in 2018 after landing a job with the airline.
    She was arrested on June 21 and managed to call her family on June 25.
    Her date is believed to be a marketing executive, from London, who she had met on a night out.

    Ms Crawford’s family are trying to find her a lawyer while the British Embassy is believed to be looking into her case but have not visited her in jail.
    A UK Foreign Office spokesman said: “We are supporting a British woman who is currently detained in the UAE and will look to visit her when local lockdown restrictions are lifted.
    “We are in contact with Emirati authorities and have provided details of local lawyers to her family.”

    IF she went back to his pad on the first date and the cops found them, it's more than just drug possession.

    Thousands of people have lived in the Emirates for longer and routinely invite a jailing by, for example, not having a liquor licence but buying booze.

    Sadly if one gets caught up in another offence then the walls can come crashing down.

    This is a young lass who doesn’t deserve the derision on display in this thread.

    Had a chat with someone who once lived in Dubai and got the impression it was ‘anything goes’ if you were reasonably discrete.
    His friend’s teenage daughter sourced a kilo block of hash for a party apparently.

    You haven't met a lot of Emirates trolley dollies have you?

    The British ones are mostly dumb as rocks ladettes and trainee hairdressers or cosmetologists.

    I know one chap who usually has platefuls of blow on the table at his private nightclub while entertaining underage Moroccan girls.

    Her job is irrelevant. Not being the freshest nut in the product that may contain nuts is not a crime.

    And of course I’ve come into contact with a fair few, though more often Etihad.

    Being the sort of slapper that goes back to a bloke's apartment on the first date is not a crime either, but it's a but fucking dumb in a country where adultery can get you a year in prison if someone snitches on you.

    *sigh*

    Yes, she made a mistake.

    Adultery is a little embellishment that you've added.

    If you think the Emiratis won't have swabbed her, you're an idiot.

    And I'm not talking about her nose.



    Her family and a campaign group specialising in Dubai's legal system says there's no justification for keeping her locked up.
    Maybe not in Croxteth.

    Obviously more off than on.

    I actually know one flying waitress who went as far as marrying her newly discovered paramour to avoid jail.

    Shortest marriage of anyone I know to this day.
