Australian facing bribery charges

AN AUSTRALIAN businessman facing bribery charges in Dubai has been given permission to call senior executives of Gold Coast property developer Sunland to give evidence at his trial.

The Rulers Court has given Matthew Joyce, who is detained in Dubai, permission to call Sunland executive chairman Soheil Abedian and development manager David Brown.

However, a Sunland spokesman said the company had not received a request from the Dubai prosecutor to attend the hearing, which resumes on October 18.
