Amal Clooney Ignores Human Rights Violations in UAE

In a brief speech at the on-going International Government Communication Forum (IGCF) in Sharjah, Amal Alamuddin Clooney spoke about the need of effective measures for regional states to adopt better human rights practices.

She told the forum Arab countries were facing 'an unprecedented human rights crisis'. She urged that criticism of ruling systems be met with dialogue, not prison terms, and that protests be met with 'crowd control,' not bullets.

However, the Lebanese-born British lawyer praised the UAE, calling it the cultural financial centre of the world and lauded the country for its innovative and ambitious approach to the future, she forgot in her speech to mention the on-going human rights violations carried out against Emirati and foreign prisoners in UAE secret detention centres, which the UAE is taking part in.

She also forgot to mention the forced disappearance policy against human rights activists and online bloggers in the UAE
