Amnesty calls for Bin Ghaith's immediate, unconditional release
Amnesty International called Tuesday on the UAE authorities to release the academic and prominent human rights defender dr. Nasser Bin Ghaith immediately and unconditionally as he has been arbitrary held since August 2015 for peacefully exercising his right to freedom of expression, association, and assembly.
The international rights group said that the prisoner of conscience Bin Ghaith is at risk of torture and ill-treatment, calling for full and independent investigation into his allegations of enforced disappearance and torture and other ill-treatment.
Amnesty also urged UAE authorities to ensure that, pending his release, he is protected from torture and other ill-treatment, and has regular access to a lawyer of his choice, his family and any medical care he may require.
