British mother locked in Dubai to drink in a plane lands in the United Kingdom and meets her family

Four-year-old daughter of Dr. Ellie Holman, Bibi, who was imprisoned with her in Dubai for three days, found her arms.

A British mother imprisoned in Dubai for drinking on the plane was greeted by her enchanted family when she landed in the United Kingdom.

The 44-year-old woman, who was imprisoned for drinking a glass of wine on a flight to the popular tourist destination, was greeted by her partner Gary at the Gatwick airport.

Speaking exclusively at MailOnline, Dr. Holman said: "I am so relieved to be home and can not wait to be with my family, recover and rest.

"It's amazing to be free and return to a safe country." I'm looking forward to being with my family. I want to keep them all together and never let them go. "

Dr. Holman, a dentist, was driven back to his home in Sevenoaks, Kent, for a private family reunion after the eight-hour flight.

Her two oldest children, Suri, aged nine and Noah, aged eight, had stayed with her in Dubai when she received a phone call telling her that she was free and accompanied her on the long flight.

Dr. Holman hugged and kissed her partner Gary as she left the arrivals hall. His four-year-old daughter Bibi, who was imprisoned with her in Dubai for three days, rushed into his arms.

The mother of three children stood in the middle of the arrivals hall, holding her tightly to Bibi, while others arriving from international flights surrounded her.

Dr. Holman said: It's so nice to be home and see my whole family. I'm tired, but very euphoric.

When they left the terminal, Dr. Holman was about to cry, but he smiled when Gary said, "You have a great tan."

She had previously told MailOnline that she had been "exhausted" by the ordeal.

While preparing to fly home for an emotional reunion with her family, she said she could not wait to return to the United Kingdom.

"I have not even begun to understand what happened to me," he said.

"I've been running alone with adrenaline for the last month and I'm exhausted."

The Kent dentist was told he could leave after a personal intervention by the country's ruler, Sheikh Mohammed.

Hours before she left, government officials in Dubai offered a different version of the facts and denied that alcohol had any role in the arrest.

They also said that they kept her for less than 24 hours, but did not offer any explanation as to why she had a blood test and was shown the alcohol reading.

Dr. Holman said she will address the statement issued by the Dubai authorities at a later time.

The Dubai statement comes into direct conflict with what Dr. Holman says.

She said her terrible experience began on July 13 after flying to Dubai for a five-day break with her daughter Bibi.

She was involved in a dispute with an immigration official who told her to return to the United Kingdom because her visa was not valid.

In a tense confrontation, Dr. Holman began filming the officer who then demanded to know if he had drunk alcohol on the flight.

When she told him she had red wine with her food on the flight, she said alcohol was illegal in the Muslim country and stopped her.

She and her daughter spent several hours in a detention cell before being taken to a detention center at the airport where they spent three days.

After her release, Dr. Holman went to stay with friends, but could not leave Dubai since her passport was confiscated.

She had been warned that it could be up to a year before her case was heard.

His release came after the personal intervention of the ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed, according to sources from the United Arab Emirates.

It is said that he ordered his release after MailOnline's coverage of his ordeal and treatment was covered by the media around the world.

Dubai, which attracts more than 14 million visitors every year, depends heavily on tourism.

The publicity about Dr. Holman's arrest for drinking a glass of wine could have had a deterrent effect on future travelers.

Dr. Holman, pictured with his son Noah, said conditions in the cell were "disgusting, smelly and baked".

She told Mail Online how the dispute over her visa intensified rapidly with a "rude and aggressive" immigration officer.

As his single entry visa had expired, he demanded that he fly back to London immediately.

When Dr. Holman refused because she and her daughter were tired from the long flight, a tense confrontation ensued.

It was then that the immigration officer asked her if she had been drinking and she admitted having had a glass of wine with her food during the eight-hour flight.

Despite her protests, she was taken to a cell where her daughter was forced to urinate on the floor as the guards would not allow her to use the bathroom.

After being detained for several hours, Dr. Holman provided a blood sample to the Dubai authorities, which returned with a reading of 0.04%, well below the limit of the UK beverage unit.

Without legal representation and unable to talk to her family, she and Bibi were taken to an airport detention center where they spent three days.

They were held in a room that smelled of baking and smelled bad and she was forced to clean the toilets and mop the floor.

With her daughter traumatized, too terrified to put her aside, she was forced to sleep in a dining area where the lights were kept 24 hours a day.

During their detention, the couple did not eat and Dr. Holman said she could not sleep during her forced stay.

& # 39; The food smelled like rotten garbage and neither Bibi nor I could face it. I kept awake during the three days, "he said.

She claims that they were also denied a pillow or a change of clothes and that Bibi was in a state of shock and refused to be comforted.

After her release, Dr. Holman was allowed to stay with friends, but her passport was confiscated and she was told it could take up to a year for the problem to be resolved.

His partner Gary flew from his home in Kent to Dubai to pick up his youngest daughter.

The couple estimates that they have lost more than £ 30,000 in profits and money spent on legal fees.

Since his arrest, Dr. Holman's practice in Sevenoaks has been closed.

He praised the NGO Stopped in Dubai for his help in securing his freedom.

"I can not thank Radha Stirling and her team in Detention in Dubai enough, thanks to her, I'll sleep in my own bed.

Dubai government officials issued a statement Saturday night saying that all charges against Dr. Holman had been dropped and that she was being deported.

The Dubai attorney general said the incident began when Ms. Holman tried to enter the city with a Swedish passport, which had expired on June 10.

He then presented an Iranian passport, but was told that he could only enter the United Arab Emirates with a new temporary visa that would allow him to stay for 96 hours, which meant he would have to change his flights.

"Ms. Holman angrily refused because of the additional payment fees that the process would require, and proceeded to verbally insult the immigration and take pictures of the officer through her phone," said Attorney General Esam Issa Al Humaidan at a release.

"A legal claim was issued against Ms. Holman on blasphemy charges and photographing a government official at the border crossing, a restricted area."

He said a decision was made to drop the charges and deport the mother of three.
