On 20 January this year, the HuffPost UK published a Blog Post by Rori Donaghy (Director at the Emirates Centre for Human Rights) headed "British Victim of Domestic Abuse Faces Prison in the UAE". The post recorded the travails experienced under the Emirati legal system by Afsana Lachaux, a British citizen of Bangladeshi origin, in connection with a bitter custody battle with her ex-husband over their three-year-old son.

The HuffPost UK has received a complaint about this post from Afsana's ex-husband, and we accept that the post might fairly be criticised for conveying a one-sided impression of the couple's dispute; it could have been made clearer that Afsana's allegations of domestic abuse were denied by her ex-husband.

We are happy to put that right, and apologise to him for any embarrassment caused.
