Al-Razeen Prison: The Guantanamo of the UAE

Al-Razeen Prison is a maximum-security prison often referred to as the Guantanamo of the UAE. It is 120 km from Abu Dhabi, in the middle of the desert where temperatures reach record levels.

Al-Razeen prison holds mostly political prisoners and prisoners of conscience, such as Nasser bin Ghaith. Contrary to what is stated by Emirati authorities the prison conditions are poor, and breaches of human rights, such as torture and ill-treatment, are systematic. The authorities of Al-Razeen Prison violate internationally agreed standards, such as the UN Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners, as well as relevant Emirati laws on a daily basis.
