This week we see a return of #BringTimmyHome and the #UAEDressCode.

Timmy MacColl, a British Royal Navy sailor, went missing in Dubai two weeks ago. The 27-year-old, from Scotland, has not been heard from since leaving Rock Bottom Cafe in the Regent Palace Hotel at 2am on Sunday, May 27. Despite reports that the Scot had been put in a taxi by his fellow sailors, there is a possibility that he got into a cab with two other people, neither of whom have been named.

@ukinuae "Have you seen Timmy MacColl ?? British man who has been missing in Dubai since 27 May 2012. http://www.bringtimmyhome.co.uk #findtimmy #bringtimmyhome".

@carolineindubai: “RT @missingabroad: Please RT Timmy Maccoll is still missing in Dubai http://www.missingabroad.org/missing-profile/timmy-maccoll #bringtimmyhome #FINDTIMMY #Dubai #missingpeople”.

While the debate on #UAEDressCode rages on, the FNC Council was scheduled to meet today to address whether to make covering everything between the shoulders and knees mandatory. We think that while living in or visiting an Islamic country, this is not too much to ask.

@UAEDressCode "#UAEDressCode UAE is well known as Arabic & Islamic country & its welcoming environment. Kindly respect & apply the dress code in public."

@Audiomonkee "FNC to argue tomorrow to make @UAEDressCode a law... to support respectful dress- what are your thoughts?"

@rod_ster “UAE culture minister to be quizzed on dress code http://bit.ly/KuBzzZ I think giving leaflets at the airport maybe a bit late. #UAEDressCode.”
