British dad facing jail in Dubai after counterfeit note mix-up

Dad-of-two Billy Barclay was handcuffed and arrested in front of his horrified wife and two young kids at Dubai airport. Barclay, 31, is accused of passing on fake money during a trip to the United Arab Emirates last year. He was arrested upon his second trip to the UAE in September.

The plasterer, from Edinburgh, Scotland, denies the allegation and says he was cleared following an investigation last year. He is now stranded in Dubai after his passport was seized by authorities. He now faces being dragged into court.

“We tried telling them about the mix-up last year but for some reason I was still in the computer as wanted for passing on fake money,” Barclay said. His partner Monique and their children, Madison, 9, and Billy Jnr, 7, have been forced to fly back to Scotland alone.
