ADHRB raises the issue of cyber surveillance in the UAE at HRC34

Americans for Democracy & Human Rights in Bahrain (ADHRB) raised during an oral intervention at the 34th session of the Human Rights Council the abuse of modern surveillance law inthe United Arab Emirates (UAE).

ADHRB pointed to the expansion of the legal framework in the UAE in which individuals may be monitored and prosecuted for the creation and dissemination of personal information.

In the UAE, broad cybercrime and anti-terror legislation are combined with a massive domestic surveillance infrastructure that enables the government to track and target all forms of dissent, the ADHRB said.

After a prolonged period of enforced disappearance, UAE authorities are currently prosecuting academic Nasser bin Ghaith for tweets in which he criticized the Emirati and Egyptian governments, the center added.
