  1. When British Spying suspects are caught they always have their well spoken media trained "partner" come on TV to hold a PR confrence.

  2. Give him a second chance.

  3. If he spied then he deserves the sentence.

  4. Dangerous world, dodge system corrupted society. Pervert in the west, We all lie….πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”βœŒwho it's perfect please: throw your first stoneπŸ˜«πŸ™„I mean comment πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

  5. A 'academic student' on 90K a year!!. That's a well paid spy. Good riddance. Hope he rots in jail. 650 ethnic minorities mysteriously 'died' in police custody in the UK. Hope the same happens to him.


  7. Terrorist British pigsπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  8. Now do you see the power of UAE even the Britain cannot do anything

  9. Those hairy baboons hahaha,Not only will they release him,they will forcefully pay the damages they have done to one of us.Great Britain knows what to do.They are in power because of us,if they miss with one of us they miss with all of us period.

  10. tells why he was arrested, you just telling us a story from one side

  11. The guy is soros funded guys?

  12. The UK used terrorism laws to jail political dissidents like Britanny, Lauren Southern and Martin Sellner. The UK isn't that different from the UAE.

  13. I hate the UAE it is a nasty country but he IS a spy. Good riddance. Hope he rots in jail. 650 ethnic minorities mysteriously 'died' in police custody in the UK. Hope the same happens to him.

  14. Prison in UAE has air conditioner & pool tables. He shd be grateful.

  15. Lol πŸ˜‚ come on this guy was spying, he needs to pay the price

  16. Stop visiting uae and ksa.Qatar&oman is safe and futur of middlest

  17. Well done UAE πŸ‡¦πŸ‡ͺ!
    Hang him! I mean Haram him!!!!

  18. They are all innocent , I am sure we the British never send spies abroad nor do we engage in espionage of any kind .

  19. Ohhh! Dear. 😰

    Why is the U.K NOT AGGRESSIVE enough to NEGOTIATE the release of their citizen? Poor- Matthew will not live for long in that country and/or environment?😳

    I've always been wary of visits to some of these Middle-Eastern nations. MORE-NOW-THAN-EVER….after the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. πŸ€”

    Why is it that folks 'OVERLOOK the DANGERS' of exposure to some of these nation's??? πŸ‘€

  20. Uae is a place where king prisons his own daughter princess latifa. What would you expect

  21. If he was spying, Then sorry. That deserved!

  22. Keep your panties on, this guy will be released in a back door deal, I say 1 year tops as soon as the story dies down, if the UK makes noise, it will only end up delaying his release.

  23. The UAE says they have "compelling and powerful evidence" of him spying. He knew the risks going in and now has to pay the price for his sloppy tradecraft. Of course this is how the game is played. He will be used as a bargaining chip by the UAE and will eventually return to the UK with full backpay and benefits awaiting him.

  24. Any movie star or business man that goes to UAE should leave now. No one should be to that nation until he is free and well back in the U.k.

  25. This guy has a better chance of walking out alive after walking into a Saudi embassy than he does to get released from the UAE

  26. Why would you go to the UAE as an activist or journalist or a researcher? Especially if you value your life , liberty and freedom

  27. they must be sick poor young student just trying to complete his PhD, no one should visit this country absolutely EVIL

  28. Game over for another 007 James Bond joker

  29. Matthew Hedges should be HANGED for spying, dont mind the FAKE british tears
    1. Spy for UK or US and get caught
    2. Release a crying fiance/wife video
    3. Demand release of the spy

  30. Travelling to backward lands like Saudi Arabia, UAE, Oman, Kuwait, Pakistan, Somali, Afghanistan, Qatar, Egypt, Bangladesh, Peckham is a big risk

  31. Please UK bomb UAE we hate it anyway.
