Shahin Back In UAE

Sep 4, 2012

A spokesperson for a fugitive Central Ohio businessman fighting corruption charges in Dubai says he has been returned to the United Arab Emirates after fleeing to Yemen.

Zack Shahin was detained by Yemeni authorities last month as he sought American diplomatic assistance to travel to the United States. Shahin was released from a Dubai jail in July after posting a 1.4 million dollar bail. He had been awaiting trial for more than four years on charges of financial improprieties as executive of a Dubai-based development company.
