Summary
Karl Williams was on holiday in Dubai with two English friends, when they were accused of drug dealing, arrested and tortured by police. They were innocent, but the authorities didn't care. And so began their year-long nightmare as they were locked up in Port Rashid where prisoners of all nationalities were crammed into stinking cells, violence could erupt in seconds, and control of the jail was in the hands of a few powerful inmates. Karl was a survivor and managed to rise up the prison pecking order, making friends with local gangsters, Russian mafia and other assorted murderers, drug dealers, fraudsters and hapless innocents he encountered behind bars. Then he was moved to the notorious Central prison. When Karl had lost all hope of finding justice, Reprieve, an organization of committed human rights defenders, took up his case
