The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MoFAIC) has summoned the US Deputy Chief of Mission Ethan Goldrich over the case of ill-treatment meted out by the Ohio Police to an Emirati citizen.

Rawda Al Otaiba, Director of the American Affairs at the MoFAIC, expressed dismay at the brutal way with which Ohio Police treated the Emirati citizen. The Police arrested and searched the Emirati citizen and further defamed him by publishing a footage of the incident.

The US Deputy Chief of Mission apologised for the incident and affirmed that the embassy will be in contact with the concerned authorities in the State of Ohio to clarify the matter.

He emphasised that the United States respects the right of different nations to wear their national dress, adding that this incident was an exception which was totally unacceptable.

He also promised to reply to the MoFAIC as soon as possible. - Emirates News Agency, WAM -
