As is the UAE's right I don't understand what all the fuss is about. I also hear that family members who made the trip out to the UAE may be seeking compensation f.....g cheek, that's life in a blue suit.

Would have thought that all necessary DipClear would have been obtained before the families were told to fly out to Dubai though - looks like there might have been a failing wrt to "attention to detail"

DIPCLEAR is often last minute so the families would be taking a chance, granted a long chance that the programme would not change. Maybe DIPCLEAR was granted then withdrawn. Maybe it isn't as being reported and a family member has gone whining to the press with half the story and half cocked.

surprised this has taken this long to make the news

This is very, very old news.......
Perhaps it's only surfacing now as the compo hunters got fcuked off and think that a bit of publicity will lead to a payment.
In other submarine news, Admiral Rickover retires.
