Prisoners of conscience mistreated in UAE's al-Razeen prison
The authorities of Al-Razeen Prison are treating their prisoners badly, including banning them from sitting or sleeping on the bed for hours, including even sick and the elderly prisoners.
They also enforce to wear blue prison clothes all the time, despite the fact that they were supposed to be allowed to put on lighter and casual outfits during the hot summer weather.
According to international standards, these measures are deemed unjust and were considered by the detainees as offensive as they do not take their human rights into consideration and thus touch their upon their dignity.
The International Centre for Justice and Human Rights (ICJHR) has been informed of these transgressions and it renewed its call to Al-Razeen, back in May 2017, to cease intimidating prisoners and put an end to the disastrous and dangerous situation.
Back in May this year, the prison guards humiliated the prisoners, going as far in their aggression on their dignity as to force them to strip off their clothes and then started touching them from their intimate body parts with searching as a pretext.
That act drove Mr. Amran Al Radwan, a detainee within the well-known case of the “UAE94”, to go into a hunger strike protesting against the inhuman degrading treatment that he and other detainees have been subjected to.
