A UK- Australian citizen was arrested in Dubai for sharing a crowdfunding link on his Facebook page.
It is reported that Scott Richard is being held without bail for posting a “link to a crowdfunding effort to bring clothes, blankets and other supplies to children at a refugee camp outside of Kabul.”
