Just four days left to release Osama al-Najjar

Four days are just left to release the online activist Osama al-Najjar who has bee jailed in UAE prisons three years ago for advocating human rights in the Gulf country.

Osama Al-Najjar is due to be released on Friday 17 March 2017, as he concludes his 3-years jail sentence. 

Osama was sentenced for criticising the UAE authorities and for revealing the human rights violations taking place within the country. 

His father, Hossain Al-Najjar, is one of the UAE94 prisoners, arrested after signing a petition calling for democratic reforms in the UAE. 

Osama's trial failed to meet international standards of a fair trial and lacked the possibility to appeal.
