Invest in Dubai

UAE President's Brother Acquitted of Attack on Businessman:
A brother of the president of the United Arab Emirates filmed beating up a former business partner and running him over in a Mercedes SUV has been acquitted of assaulting him.

The failure to convict Sheikh Issa bin Zayed al Nahyan will be a blow to the country's attempts to improve the image of its legal system.
