Emirati prisoner of conscience subjected to torture in Razeen prison

The prisoner of conscience Rashid bin Sabit has been subjected to ill-treatment in Al-Razeen prison, rights sources revealed.

ICJHR said that Sabit has been banned from meeting his lawyer for 5 months and denied family visits for 4 months.

Since 2011, scores of prisoners of conscience, including human rights defenders, are held and serving lengthy prison sentences after unfair trials for peacefully exercising their rights to freedom of expression, association, and assembly.

Rights groups have repeatedly called on the UAE government to end its continuing use of harassment, arbitrary detention, enforced disappearance, torture and other ill-treatment, and unfair trials against activists, human rights defenders and those critical of the authorities, and its use of national security as a pretext to crackdown on peaceful activism and to stifle calls for reform.
