    Yike, this will look bad for all of the coastal states that have a high rule of law index in relation to other middle eastern nations. These more capitalistic societies are more progressive in order to garner consumers external of their nations. That is one reason why the rule of law is so important for these nation's wealth and protecting their foriegn investments. With this, maybe the world has a slightly warped perception of the rule of law in EAU and perhaps other wealthy coastal states like Kuwait, Qatar, and Oman. These states are more authoritarian than one might think, they do have monarchs, usually they tend to not apply many of their social/domestic statutes on outsiders in the metropolitan areas since they will begin to lose business. With more stories like these, they very well are running the risk of losing foreign investments and consumer confidence.
