Video: UAE used 'clandestine' lobbying tactics in the UK

A UK-based investigative agency has obtained documents revealing an expensive lobbying effort by the UAE in Britain.

The Spinwatch group says that in the UK, the UAE 'mobilised a narrative against the Muslim Brotherhood in Britain in the highest echelons of government'.

The Spinwatch report includes emails from an Emirati lobbying group to influence the BBC's coverage of the Arab spring.

The report also questions the UAE's credentials as an alleged supporter of "freedom" and "human rights", given its own detention and torture of activists and deep involvement in the controversial Saudi-led military intervention in Yemen.
