Dubai: American Detained For Parody Video About Youth Culture

A Minnesota man working in the United Arab Emirates has been detained for over six months after posting a lighthearted spoof video about youth culture in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), rights groups claimed Wednesday.

According to Fox News, Shezanne Cassim, 29, was arrested in April on allegations of violating a late 2012 law that toughens penalties for challenging authorities. He was moved to a maximum security prison in Abu Dhabi in June - and there is no indication that he is going to be released.
