Syrian children show solidarity with Abdouli siblings
A group of Syrian children waged a soludarity event in support of Abdouli siblings who are arbitrary held in the UAE prisons.
On 31 October, the Supreme Federal Court in the United Arab Emirates issued its verdict against Amina ‘Abdouli and her brother Mos’ab ‘Abdouli, sentencing them to five and seven years in prison respectively. The verdicts are final and cannot be appealed.
Amina was convicted of creating and running two Twitter accounts and publishing information with the aim of inciting hatred against the State and disturbing public order; mocking and damaging the reputation of State institutions; publishing false information about Saudi Arabia and making derogatory remarks about an Egyptian official with the aim of endangering the State’s relations with Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
Her brother, Mos’ab ‘Abdouli, was convicted of joining the non-state armed group Ahrar al-Sham in Syria prior to June 2013 and receiving military training, charges he denies. He has been sentenced to seven years in prison.
