AbdulKhaleq Abdulla added to jailed academics list in the UAE

Well-informed sources revealed that the Emirati academic and political science professor Dr. Abdulkhaleq Abdullah was arrested on Monday the 16th of Jan, 2017 by the UAE State Security Apparatus.

Amnesty International affirmed in a tweet published in its official account (@amnesty_UAE) on Wednesday his arrest, expressing fear that he might be a new prisoner of conscience in the UAE.

The sources believed that he was arrested due to his latest tweets talking about the freedom of expression in the UAE and and his comments to respect the Egyptian court decision on the ownership of the two islands.

Dr. Abdulkhaleq is a liberal thinker and is the most known Emirati face to the international media on politics. 

No official source commented on the issue or gave further details about his whereabouts or the circumstances of his arrest till the moment of writing.
