Prison notes from Abu Dhabi: U. Florida professor jailed for taking pictures

By Jeff Schweers

Ten days have passed since University of Florida engineering professor John K. Schueller was arrested in Abu Dhabi — where he remains, unable to leave the United Arab Emirates as he awaits his day in court.

“I have legal representation and things are moving forward,” Schueller said via email Thursday. He declined to discuss the particulars of the case until the matter is resolved.

Schueller said he was in the UAE’s capital of Abu Dhabi on UF-approved business travel to attend a conference on world hunger, “The Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture.”
