... no, this has nothing to do with the Burj Dubai Khalifa, they paid good money to rename that building. This is actually about Sheikh Issa bin Zayed al Nahyan - brother of HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates and ruler of Abu Dhabi. And littl brother just got away with torture!

I swear I linked to the video here before, but I can't seem to find it, so here's a link (warning, it is messed up - you probably do not want to watch it. Seriousy. Don't watch it, just read a description - it'll astound you).

Anyway, yeah, he got off scot free, but the dudes who shot the video? Jail time (in absentia) and a fine.

The whole saga: "Sheik Acquitted in Abu Dhabi Torture Case".
