A Briton fighting extradition from Dubai to Saudi Arabia
Dubai, Feb 18th, 2001

A Briton fighting extradition from Dubai to Saudi Arabia on alcohol-related charges has appealed against deportation after entering the UAE illegally. Gary Dixon, who also uses the name Gary O'Nions, entered after trekking across the desert from Saudi Arabia where he had been arrested and released on bail last April.

He was arrested again at Dubai airport in June for attempting to bribe an immigration official to allow him to leave for Cyprus. He was jailed for six months, then to be deported on January 10. However, he remains in custody pending the outcome of a Saudi request for his extradition.

Dixon's appeal against deportation will be decided by the Dubai Cassation Court on February 24. Dubai Attorney General Ibrahim Bu Melha said the Public Prosecutor is studying the Saudi request for extradition on charges involving the illegal manufacture and distribution of alcohol.

He allegedly ran the British Empire Club, an illicit drinking den popular with Western expatriates before it was closed down by Saudi police last year.
