Video: Syrian national arbitrary held in UAE

Mohamad Az, a Syrian national and UAE resident, was arrested in September 2013,  by the UAE security forces after brutally storming and searching his house without a warrant.

Since then ,he was held in secret detention for 4 months.

In December 2014, the UAE Federal Supreme Court sentenced him to 15 years in prison for administering a Facebook page commenting and criticising the development of the Syrian war.

His allegations of physical and psychological torture were rejected and not investigated by the Court.

On 4 July 2017, the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention, a UN-mandated body, issued Opinion No. 21/2017 on the case.The Group declared his detention 'arbitrary' and called for his  immediate release.
