The British man who was sentenced to three months’ imprisonment in Dubai for touching another man’s hip has tonight landed back in the UK after the charges against him were dropped.

Jamie Harron, 27, from Stirling, was sentenced for public indecency in the Middle Eastern country

Jamie Harron, 27, from Stirling, was sentenced in his absence for public indecency in the Middle Eastern country on Monday.
He was arrested following the incident in July and claimed he was simply trying to avoid spilling his drink when he touched a businessman. 
The electrician lost his job and racked up debt after having to spend more than £32,000 in legal fees and expenses while stuck without a passport in the UAE.
But he was able to leave the country after the charges were dropped and said he can’t wait for ‘a good night’s sleep in my bed’ after landing at Glasgow Airport. 
He was photographed on Tuesday evening with his thumbs up at the airport and was pictured embracing his delighted mother Patricia, father Graham and sister Jordan.
Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum is thought to have intervened due to growing international pressure.  
In a statement released through campaign group Detained in Dubai, Mr Harron said: ‘No one should go through what I went through.
The electrician had been working in Afghanistan and was on a two-day stopover in the United Arab Emirates when he was arrested in July. 
The vice president and prime minister of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, has exonerated Harron, according to the group Detained in Dubai.
Radha Stirling, who works for Detained in Dubai, said: ‘The cases against him have been dismissed, and the sentence imposed by the court yesterday has been nullified.
