515 UAE prisoners pardoned ahead of Eid Al Adha, no political prisoners included

Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, president of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), has ordered the release of 515 prisoners serving various sentences in the country, ahead of Eid Al Adha.

However, the traditional presidential pardon did not include any political prisoners or online activists although many of them suffer serious health problems amid reports that Covid-19 is spreading fast in Emirati prisons. 

Eid Al Adha is a time for Muslims to spend with their families and loved ones. However, dozens of prisoners of conscience in the UAE are denied the joys of celebrating Eid.
