The UAE authorities stripped away the nationality of an Emirati family due to "non-cooperation"

On Tuesday, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) stripped away the nationality of Emirati Abid al-Ka'abi, a political activist along with his family.

The authorities stripped away the nationality of al-Ka'abi’s wife, and five children for refusing to "cooperate" with its security services.

Al-Ka'abi is an former political prisoner in the UAE, he was subjected to severe torture and ill-treatment for his political activism.

He was a school teacher before being dismissed for criticising the UAE government's policies.

Without official documents, al-Ka'abi's family will be unable to gain access to basic services at home and travel overseas.

Earlier last month, UAE authorities stripped away the nationality of three Emiratis who are the children of the political prisoner Mohammed Abdulrazzaq al-Siddiq, who was jailed for 10 years for allegedly plotting to overthrow the state, in a controversial 2013 trial of 94 political activists.
