100 Days passed since Ahmed Mansoor's arrest
100 days have passed since the 2015 Laureate Martin Ennals Award for Human Rights Defenders Ahmed Mansour's arrest on March 20, 2017 in Dubai.
The leading human rights activist Mansour was arrested shortly after he signed, along with other human rights defenders from Arab countries, a letter addresssed to the Arab summit, which was held in Jordan on March 29, calling to release prisoners of conscience and promote and protect human rights in the Arab world.
Due to his human rights work and his defense of political activists of all backgrounds, over the past years Ahmed Mansour was the target of continual harassment and surveillance proceedings. He has been subjected to arbitrary arrests and travel ban.
UAE residents known to have spoken with international rights groups are at serious risk of arbitrary detention and imprisonment.
ICFUAE is scheduled to host a vigil on 27th June - gathering from 6.30pm outside the UAE Embassy, 30 Princes Gate, South Kensington, London SW7 1PT. Join us to call for Mansoor's release!
