Prevention Of Future Death Report Outlines Advice For Foreign Office About Dubai Tourism

A coroner has raised concerns the Foreign Office (FCDO) is not doing enough to warn Britons of the risk of visiting Dubai after a Londoner “probably” died from beatings and neglect in police custody.Lee Bradley Brown, from Ilford, was arrested after a verbal altercation with a member of staff at the landmark Burj Al Arab hotel on April 7, 2011.He died five days later from “neglect” while at the Bur Dubai police station.A jury inquest into the 39-year-old’s death found that the beatings sustained in custody, from inmates and police, as well as a lack of access to food and medical care, “probably” contributed to his death.Now in a rare prevention of future deaths report, released on Tuesday, east London coroner Nadia Persaud has raised fears future deaths could occur because the FCDO does not have an emergency access protocol to reach detained Britons in similar situations.
