DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - A lawyer for an American businessman fighting corruption charges in Dubai says he is seeking information on who is holding his client after he was caught in Yemen trying to flee and returned to the United Arab Emirates.

Attorney James Jatras says he has filed a formal request with UAE legal authorities to meet with former development company CEO Zack Shahin.

Shahin was returned to UAE custody last week after he sought American diplomatic assistance in Yemen to return to the U.S. He was released from a Dubai jail in July on $1.4 million bail following a hunger strike. He had been imprisoned for more than four years awaiting trial and denies any wrongdoing.

Jatras said Wednesday he has received no details from UAE authorities on Shahin's location or condition.
