I meet a man 3 years ago in UAE.over the years I gave him a lot of money. as well has he got some jewelleries from me. in July we got married under Islamic law. I live in UK and he is in Lebanon. All 2-3 month i fly out. He finally send me an fax where he admitted to have taken money from me as a loan. He promised me to give it back to me end of December. I still did not get my jewelleries.I am flying out to Beirut on 28/12 for 8 days. If he does not pays me back and does not gives me back my jewelleries what chance do I have to get it back. How do I go ahead? I am worried and scared.


You could indeed sue him if he  fails to pay you--
