I worked for a company that built call centers, mostly for banks.
We once sent a programmer in 2000 to Riyahd. He lived in the British compound and stayed out of trouble.
The Saudi bank decided that they would not sign off on the project completion and kept adding tasks - classic mission creep.
5 and a half months later, it took a call from a London (very) senior executive to get his passport back so he could leave.
He promptly collected his per diem and quit.
Considering this woman's ordeal happened in Dubai - wow. They are tolerant compared to the Saudis.

Interesting . . . and may explain why my former bosses in Japan sent me on a business trip to Saudi Arabia soon after I had joined the company. The Saudis did not collect my passport, however.
