Same way it works in just about every other country, I presume. People who cause traffic accidents come up with similarly implausible excuses all over the world, not just in Dubai.

But they didn't. The second officers name first came into the public domain as a result of comments made on social media by his friends and family - that's where the media picked it up from. Go back and look at the earliest news reports with his name and you'll even see screenshots from twitter and facebook.

Well, ultimate responsibility for the safety of the flight rests with the captain, so I fail to see how he will be able to escape taking at least some of the blame unless the primary cause is found to be technical or unforeseeable weather.
You really seem to be very desperate to bash EK or the UAE for some reason. We've got it. Time to move on.
