The UAE prosecution decides to extend Osama Al-Najjar's imprisonment
The UAE the prosecution decided to extend the imprisonment of the online activist Osama Al-Najjar without any legal basis
The International Center for Justice and Human Rights affirmed Saturday that Al-Najar's imprisonment was extended without specifying the duration of his arbitrary detention.
The UAE prosecution claimed that Al-Najjar's release poses a threat and must be revised, according to the sources.
Osama al-Najjar, jailed on 17 March 2014, was scheduled to be released yesterday after serving three years in prison for posting a series of tweets criticising a mass trial of government critics and reform advocates known as UAE94 unfair trial.
However, Osama remains kept in incommunicado detention wihtout any legal basis in flagrant violation to both international and UAE laws, as there is no reason for depriving him of his liberty.
