That is definitely one of the best comebacks to Smali the SmileyShah
Your second paragraph is just nonsense and akin to making a Head of State responsible for any crime that takes place in their country.
Obviously Dubai is far from perfect but it is improving (new "labour camps" of companies like Nakheel and Aldar are more like resorts)
BTW, workers in the UAE need to be sponsored by a local entity to obtain a visa.
The sponsor then becomes responsible for all actions of the employee including debts and crimes.
As such, those at the lower levels have their passports retained by the sponsor to ensure that they dont skip out on their obligations leaving the sponsor to foot the bill

Lol passports "retained"
What's the difference between passports retained and forced stay.
Tbf to Dubai they wouldn't be able to control their country if they didn't keep extremely strong checks. After all the local population is less than a fourth of the total population I suppose.
"Update: Sheikh Issa bin Zayed al-Nahyan was acquitted on Sunday of charges related to the abuse of an Afghan merchant."
In a theocratic state, where government is watching your every step. it is easily possible that the Government (may or may not include the head of the state) knows everything.Your second paragraph is just nonsense and akin to making a Head of State responsible for any crime that takes place in their country.
Retaining passports to ensure the workers donít run off is such a ridiculous argument. You donít get to own a personís life just because they work for you. Tough cookies if Dubaiís laws hold you responsible for your workerís debt. Donít bring them over here if you canít afford the risk. The ďriskĒ doesnít entitle you to enslave and exploit the vulnerable.
