Bad report from Britain

This does not sound good: "An accountant claims that he was kept for more than 24 hours in 'leg chains' and denied food and water after flying into New York's JFK airport with his wife." The article goes on to say he was charged with having outstanding debts to Qatar, although he was not allowed to defend himself, the British consulate was unable to help him, and Qatar says he doesn't have outstanding debts. The whole thing sounds surreal and somewhat ludicrous to me, but, well, the Telegraph isn't the UK paper known for making things up to make the US look bad. I'd be interested to see any followup.
