Jailed Emirati activist Ahmed Mansoor's life is at risk

The Gulf Center for Human Rights expressed deep fear that the imprisoned human rights defender Ahmed Maansoor's life is at risk as a result of the awful conditions of his imprisonment.

According to the sources, Mansoor is still being kept in solitary confinment after suspendig his month-long hunger strike.

Mansoor is being held in an isolation ward in Al-Sadr prison, in Abu Dhabi, with no bed, no running water, no access to a shower, and a hole in the floor as a toilet.

He is not allowed to leave his 4X4 meter cell. He is not allowed regular family visits or other rights normally accorded to prisoners, such as visits to the canteen, regular telephone calls and access to books, newspapers, and TV.

On 7 May 2019 the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture and six other UN human rights experts condemned Mansoor’s conditions of detention, noting “the poor conditions of his detention in the United Arab Emirates, including prolonged solitary confinement, may constitute torture.”
