Moza Abdouly, the Youngest Prisoner of Opinion in the Arab World
Moza Mohammed Abdouly,18, appeared before the Federal Supreme Court; for allegedly “insulting the Emirati state, its leaders, and its official and political institutions” as well as “disseminating false news that could harm the UAE’s reputation” via tweets published in her social networking site “Twitter” account.
Moza Mohammed Abdouly was arrested along with her sister Amina and their brother Mohammed Musab Abdouly in the evening of November 19, from the house in Fujairah emirate.
In response to the charges pressed against her, Abdouly asserted that she was not intentionally meaning or aiming at distorting any public figure, government, or institution. Her testimony hearing was adjourned to the 2nd of May 2016, until reviewing the case’s documents upon her lawyer’s request.
After the release of the “T-shirt ant-torture” boy, Moza Mohammed Abdouly has held the record of the youngest prisoner of conscience in the Arab countries; as she is being tried for writing some tweets to lament her father.
