Welsh tourist 'stuck in Dubai' over £36k speeding fine

Lamborghini Aventador S

Police will impound the vehicle if the fines aren't paid.

The dealership where Mr Hashi rented the Lamborghini Huracán told the city's newspaper, The National, he left his passport as a guarantee.

Mr Hashi reportedly broke the speed limit on one of Dubai's busiest roads dozens of times in the early hours of Tuesday.

But his brother Adman, 50, claims his passport was seized after he had driven the £155,000 supercar. "I won't be trying to take it back, because once I do, I know I have to surrender it to police", Iqbal said. He is out of work at the minute and went to Dubai to visit friends. However, he might be looking at an extended stay in Dubai, though not necessarily for pleasure, this time.

A rep confirms for the publication that they're also aware the Lambo is now gathering dust outside the tourist's hotel, but they're refusing to go and collect it. "Then who pays the money for the impound?"

For now it's unclear what the outcome will be but Hashi was due to end his Dubai vacation on Wednesday. "I can't keep his passport with me for long".

Firefighters were joined by colleagues from other counties as they tried to prevent the fire spreading. Thick black smoke from thousands of plastic pallets on fire could be seen across the East Midlands .

Iqbal said he had never had a client run up such a large amount in speeding fines from hiring one of his luxury sports cars.

Hashi is said to have triggered every speed camera on the Sheikh Hashid road reaching a top speed of about 143mph. Twelve of the fines were imposed for exceeding 124mph and were seconds apart.

He said they were ignored and Hashi continued to speed along the road triggering roadside cameras that took a photo of the number plate.

With the driver legally off the hook, for now, the dealer fears he could go to the embassy and claim he lost his passport in order to get home scot-free and avoid paying the colossal fine.

Hashi was driving a Lamborghini Huracán on loan from Saeed Ali Rent a auto, and since the vehicle was registered to the rental company it ended up receiving all of the fines.

Hashi was unavailable for comment.
