"A HEARTBROKEN mum has spoken out about her agony over her son who has been trapped in a hellhole jail in Dubai for eleven months.

Breda Hood, the devastated mother of Billy Hood, opened up about her fears that she may never see her son again as he pleaded with her not to forget him.

Last month Billy was sentenced to 25 years in prison after police found four tiny bottles of harmless CBD vape oil in his car.

The bottles were left by a pal who Billy had dropped off at the airport.

With that horrifying sentence, it means he will remain in Dubai's most notorious prison until his 49th birthday.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun Online, Breda, from West London, said: "It just feels unreal.

"There is no word in the dictionary to say how I felt [about the sentencing] or what I'm still feeling. It still sticks in my mind.

"He got 25 years? For what? You've taken away his life.

Breda first heard about what happened to Billy at the beginning of February after his friends had reported the football coach missing.

A few days after making enquiries, Billy's pals told his older brother Alex that he had been arrested.

"We sort of thought it wasn't going to be a major thing," Breda explained. "That's why we didn't go public with it for eight or nine months.

"Billy kept on saying 'don't worry about it, it's gonna get sorted.'

"It was stupid. We sort of laughed it off. I know it sounds silly now but that's what we did do. We just thought it was gonna get sorted and he'll be home soon."

But Billy's situation in Dubai went from bad to worse.

After the 24-year-old was handed down his sentence he vanished and lost contact with the outside world.

Billy's family had not heard from him after he was moved from one of Dubai's most notorious prisons.

His family were deeply concerned for his wellbeing after he claimed that he had damning evidence that Dubai cops framed him.

That's when he said 'please don't forget me'. I told him 'I will never forget you son, never'

Breda Hood
But last Sunday, Breda said she spoke to her son to which he explained he had been locked in solitary confinement for ten entire days.

"That phone call Billy gave last Sunday was heartbreaking," Breda said fighting back tears.

"I don't know if they have human rights over there but mental torture is what he has been through.

"Billy said he came close to thinking that was it for him. Ten days with bright lights on you in solitary confinement. It didn't think he was gonna come through."

Billy told his mum that the jail was "like hell on Earth".

"And I'm a mum I had to listen to that on the phone," Breda said.

"You watch prison programs on the telly and you see how they are treated in other countries but when it's your own son, it's so hard.

"And that phone call on Sunday, I will never forget it, I will never forget his words."

As he awaits the verdict for his appeal, Billy will spend his 25th birthday in appalling conditions in the notorious Al Sadr prison." "



Even more evidence of complete ignorance, which could be described as evil. Marijuana laws need to be revoked worldwide. They need to ask the president to request that he be deported from Dubai ASAP... or something. Something has to be done, like the journalist that was facing prison time but was released back to the Usa.

if only he already hadn't fired a bunch of staff members for prior cannabis use and the US foreign policy establishes that we only go into the Middle East for oil, not for human rights violations.


i seriously, 100% believe that weed is illegal federally to maintain beneficial oil trading conditions with the Middle East. Like if we legalize it, OPEC will just stop production.

Guy in article is a citizen of the UK, it's their jurisdiction. Perhaps you should cease sucking off your orange dictator long enough to read an article.

I was responding to the op's comment, maybe you are the one who needs to take the dick out of your mouth and read a bit more closely :facepalm:

Orange dictator? Did you just crawl out of a cave? Biden is the president now. So, they’d have to cease sucking off their child touching, racist dictator.

Yeah idk why anybody would go to that fucking place. I mean isn’t it common knowledge that they don’t fuck around when it comes to drugs? I’ve never even been on a plane and know to avoid that hell hole.

Most people go for contract work, I knew a couple guys in IT who did this, $250k a year but no drugs or alcohol and pretty much have to stay in the housing they put you up in when not at work.

This is definitely a sad case; but I'm sure people there are well aware of the laws and the punishments that come with them.


Whether you agree with laws or not they have consequences...this guy found out they weren't fucking around with theirs....hope his appeal works out for him and he leaves that shithole country after.

With all due respect for not having misadventures in other less-familiar shithole countries, besides where you live --

Well that’d be a little different. I wouldn’t mind going on a short work trip or something. I’d definitely keep my head on a swivel though

I couldn't imagine not being able to walk around outside at all, like a prisoner. I don't like being cooped up. Essentially it sounds like contractors there have to basically behave like they force women to, never outside unsupervised, domestic prison.

A UK DJ Grrooverider was caught with less than 2 grams of weed in a suitcase which was more like weed dust, and they jailed him for 4 years in Dubai. Only he was lucky, they released him after about 10 months in jail.

Don't take weed or CBD products to Muslim countries.

This guy is even less lucky:

I'm not sure why this surprises people Dubai has been doing this for a long time. There actually lucky they didn't get stoned, fingers cut-off, or just plain executed. Considering the place this is a actually a light sentence from there normal justice system.
