Dubai's ruler has been accused of enslaving thousands of youngchildren for camel races in a class-action lawsuit filed in the US.

The action claims Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum,his brother Hamdam and 500 others are responsible for abducting andtrafficking the children.

It was filed on behalf of six unidentified parents and thousands of unnamed children.

There has been no comment on the action from the accused.

The children were said to be from Bangladesh, Sudan and southern Asia.

Once in Dubai, it is claimed that the children - some ofthem as young as two - were kept in poor conditions, starved (so as tokeep their weight down), abused and forced to take part in a dangeroussport.

The case was filed in Miami where Sheikh Mohammed and his brother, Sheikh Hamdam bin Rashid al-Maktoum, have property.

The two, along with the other 500 defendants who the suit says are as yet unknown, face nine counts.

They include engaging in slavery, conspiring to engagein slavery, engaging in or facilitating child labour, battery, assault,infliction of emotional distress and wrongful death.

The use of child camel jockeys was banned in Dubai 13 years ago.




This is a BBC Article : http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/5346430.stm

This article is misleading for the following reasons :


To add more:

What the unidentified six man gang did is some sort of cheap blackmail ... and this BBC article (including the last sentence in it) is another form of blackmail ... though more expensive !

What should be clear is that there is more organized crime and trafficking of humans in Europe than anywhere else in the world , Evidence is abundant in the Netherlands where humans are put in shop fronts for people who shop human flesh, and more evidence is abundant in Italy, Germany, etc ... where prostitution is a legal form of WORK ! and governments take taxes from sex "workers"!

Worse is the case of Britain and the USA, where politicians traffic in humanity all together, as they are doing now in Iraq, and else where ...

Even worse than the politicians of the west are the "humane" institutions of the west , because they traffic in inhumanity, prostituting their human conscience when they cover up the crimes of their shadow lords of Britain, USA, and Israel!
