Wife of jailed Briton Matthew Hedges speaks to BBC – BBC News
She was very, very scared when he was standing in front of the judge just because we knew that the possibilities of there being an arbitrary judgments where they’re asked him to look at me if he was feeling too nervous, and he tried to do so on a Couple of applications but was asked to face the judge and he started shaking when the translator told him the sentence he actually had to ask to double check. If he had heard right and yeah I mean – I can imagine he’s just too distraught, as I am the Attorney General suggested, but this isn’t necessarily the final sentence that there are appeals and things that can be done. That have your lawyers that talk to you about. What happens now appointed lawyer wants that since the hearing he said that there is possibility for appeal and that they will be working on it. However, I feel that it shouldn’t have had to get this instance of his innocence is evidence and every evidence against him is completely fabricated and he was put through so much train for six months. That’S absolutely nothing that he said or didn’t could be used against him.

The wife of a British student jailed for spying in the United Arab Emirates says the British government put UK interests above his right to freedom.

Daniela Tejada spoke to the BBC shortly after returning to the UK from Abu Dhabi where she saw Durham University’s Matthew Hedges sentenced to life.

The 31-year-old denies spying but prosecutors said he had confessed.

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt met the UAE ambassador in London earlier for “a very frank conversation”.

Theresa May said she was “deeply concerned” by the situation adding that it was “being raised at the highest level” in the UAE.

Hedges, who is originally from Exeter, said he had been in the country conducting research on the UAE’s security strategy for his PhD thesis when he was arrested at Dubai airport on 5 May.
