I told you so – somehow he’d try to get away without facing American justice.
The United Arab Emirates military officer accused of forcing his Filipino servant to work unpaid caring for his five children and cleaning his house in East Greenwich while he studied at the Naval War College was arrested late Monday at Kennedy Airport in New York aboard a direct flight back to his country.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested Arif Mohamed Saeed Mohamed Al-Ali around 11 p.m. Monday after authorities flagged his information when he checked in with his family to catch a flight to the United Arab Emirates, in violation of the terms of his release, according to Jim Martin, spokesman for U.S. Attorney Peter F. Neronha’s office.
A federal judge in New York released Al-Ali in the custody of three United Arab Emirates officials, including a military colonel and an attaché. The judge released him on $100,000 unsecured bond and ordered him to wear a GPS bracelet. He is due to appear in U.S District Court in Rhode Island at 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Al-Ali had a passport when he was arrested Monday, though Almond had ordered his lawyer to provide proof that it was in the custody of the court or the United Arab Emirates consulate, Martin said. Martin would not comment on how Al-Ali had retained possession of his passport. He is being held in New York and was due to appear in federal court there Tuesday.
