Rights group criticises UAE for disregarding UPR recommendations

Americans for Democracy & Human Rights in Bahrain (ADHRB) criticised, at the 38th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council, the United Arab Emirates’ disregard for the UPR process and its recommendations from the past reporting cycles.

The group expressed deep concern over the UAE government’s demonstrated intent to continue to disregard a wide range of thematic human rights concerns and recommendations expressed during multiple iterations of the UPR process, in particular over its failure to lift restrictions on freedom of expression and to end the systematic use of torture.

Torture in detention centers is widespread, with inmates recounting beatings; prolonged solitary confinement; exposure to extreme climates; deprivation of sleep, prayer, and toilet facilities; electric shocks; and denial of medical care, the ADHRB added.
