Youngest prisoner of conscienc tried for a tweet
Lawyer of al-Abdouli family revealed that the youngest prisoner of conscience in the Arab world Moza al-Abdouli, 19, is being tried in UAE Supreme Court for a tweet she posted in her social networking site “Twitter” account when she was only 15.
We recall that Moza Mohammed Alabdouli, as her sister, Amina Mohammed Alabdouli (33 years old) and her two brothers, Mosab Mohammed Alabdouli (25 years old) and Walid Mohammed Alabdouli (arrested later on November 29), was arrested on Thursday the 19th of November 2015 by the UAE State Security Apparatus which took her to an unknown direction.
Before her enforced disappearance, her house in the Emirate of Al-Fujairah was raided at 11pm and searched by individuals with civil clothes. Her house was searched, and then, no one knew her fate and whereabouts. Available information said no arrest warrant was shown to the detained individual or her family. She was not informed of any charges during the arrest, as she has not herself committed an offense nor a crime. But this arrest is believed to be in relation with tweets she has posted in memory of her father, who passed away in Syria in 2013.
