Codeine

More on the codeine case in today's Gulf News. Her lawyer is insisting that she has not been sentenced, and GN insists that their source at the courts says she has. Khaleej Times is not covering the story directly, but has paraphrased (and named!) Gulf News in its story. And secretdubai is pretty upset by it.

According to Friday's Gulf News she's got bail.

If she had been sentenced already, it would have been in the international media, and there would be a furore - particularly if the doctor's prescription thing is true.

When and if that document gets translated into Arabic, they are going to look really, really fucking stupid here. I know there is more to this story than meets the eye, but by focusing on a trumped up drugs charge they've really shot themselves in the foot.
